When a talented young musician goes underground with a strange new church, her kid brother and his best buddy are propelled into the heart of a deepening mystery. Is she a victim or an accomplice in her own disappearance? And where exactly do you draw the line between a church and a cult?
What They're Saying ...
Washington City Paper: Salvation Road "provides a satisfying and grounded dissection of youth, religiosity, family, and the psychology of cults."
"Indeed, Salvation Road keeps us engaged for almost all 90 minutes of its runtime precisely because it poses questions that may well be unanswerable. The play forces us to consider our own thoughts on the bonds of family, the meaning of sacrifice, and the seeming irrationality of faith. Throughout the play, we empathize with both Denise and Cliff, even as they stand opposed to one another, and even as we chastise them for their missteps. The overall effect of Salvation Road is not unlike that of a cultish devotion: simultaneously satisfying and terrifying." -- John Krizel
D.C. Metro Theater Arts rated Salvation Road "Best of the 2015 Capital Fringe: 5 Stars." And named it a staff pick for "favorite drama," "favorite show of the Fringe," and "favorite ensemble" as well as giving a shout-out to lead actor Chris Daileader for his performance.
"Every year the Fringe produces a few real standouts among its more serious offerings. D.W. Gregory’s thoughtful and funny Salvation Road is an excellent example. Anchored by a talented young cast and brimming with intellectual brain food, Salvation Road is a powerful little play about the opaque nature of understanding and belief." -- Robert Montenegro
D.C. Theater Scene: "an expert piece of craftsmanship."
Philadelphia Weekly called Salvation Road "a show not to be missed."
