There but by the Grace of God go I
The opening night performance of Grace, at the Ron Hurley Theatre in Seven Hills, seamlessly covered several different religious belief systems with ease and comfort.

And don't let the reference to religion put you off: there is so much more happening in this play which will keep you totally engaged.

Steve (James Elliott) a religious zealot, Sarah (Ellen Hardisty) with spiritual leanings, Sam (Daren King) an astrophysicist, who sees the world in scientific terms, and Karl (Peter Condon), the atheist, portrayed their characters with conviction. It was interesting that in this production, by American playwright Craig Wright, not one of the character portrayals was any weaker than the others. This made the audience feel that each of the characters, in one way or another, were right in their beliefs.

Combining comedy, tragedy and a sprinkling of quantum physics, 'Grace' is a powerful meditation on the nature of faith, the factors that draw people together, and what happens when God doesn't play by the rules.

The recently formed, Brisbane-based Minola Theatre, founded by Kat Dekker and Bianca Butler Reynolds, received critical acclaim for Highway of Lost Hearts during Brisbane's 2019 Anywhere Festival earlier in the year. This is a team that is worth watching. For further information about Minola Theatre, check out Facebook here.
