GRACE is a tragicomedy that explores human assumptions about how God, goodness, faith and causality operate in the cosmic machinery. Steve and Sara have relocated to Sunrise, Florida to pursue an unbelievably wonderful business deal, but as the deal slowly unravels and Steve finds himself afflicted with an itch that just won’t stop, Sara finds herself increasingly drawn to their next-door neighbor, Sam, a badly-scarred victim of a recent car accident who wants nothing to do with her or her Bible-quoting husband. In the end, with a little help from an old German exterminator who's still angry about the Allied bombing of Hamburg in World War II, all three characters are confronted by a world that's both better and worse than any religion can justify.
"This is a darkly comic, eerily tragic, wholly timely play. It dives headfirst into questions of faith and religion (not necessarily the same thing at all). It explores the nature of those often deeply painful partners: love and change. And it leads us into the realms of time and space through the use of purely poetic language. What’s more, Wright does all this in ways that are at once profound and dangerous, epic and personal. And, as he demonstrated in an earlier work, Orange Flower Water, he is one of the most searing and incisive observers of male-female relationships, faithfulness and broken faith." —Chicago Sun-Times. "GRACE brings refreshing—though far from reassuring—complexity to what is fast becoming the most urgent philosophical issue of our time." —LA Times. "A brave and pitiless attempt to understand the sources of faith and devotion." —LA Weekly.
