To a conservative church in a south-western Ontario town comes Jonah Arias?a troubled, left-leaning, pill-popping United Church minister. Reverend Jonah is young and idealistic, with courage enough to challenge the power-brokers in his small community. When he starts an inappropriate relationship with a young woman in the congregation, and then decides to repatriate a former member of the church expelled for being in a lesbian relationship, the ensuing battle threatens to derail Jonah's career and fracture the church. The play, like Reverend Jonah himself, is unafraid to ask the tough questions: Do we have the right to judge one another? What constitutes integrity? What is courage? Are we prepared to embrace rather than censure our fellow human beings? Thoughtful and powerful, Reverend Jonah challenges us to explore the meanings of community in the very broadest sense.
