"I have a black wife. That's like the equivalent of having ten black friends. I'm like basically black by association."
As Gaby prepares for public appearances supporting her husband, Patrick, in his bid for governor, the campaign is hit with impending scandal. Information surfaces regarding Patrick's participation in a racist dare during a college hazing rite. The campaign wheels spin to save his image. With headlines and media conferences pressing in on them, Gaby is poised on a fulcrum where the personal becomes explosively political.

FAITH examines religious fanaticism via 13-year-old Simon, the son of “an apostate” mother and absent father, desperately seeking an ecstatic vision in the parking lot of his local Walmart. When a Harbinger finally appears to him, his faith transforms, leading him down an unexpected path. Funny and charming, provocative and absorbing, the award-winning James McLindon spurs us to question (and, perhaps, affirm) our own faith. Full of magic, theatrics and- yes- jokes, FAITH was a LOCAL Lab 2014 Selection.
