Balagula Theatre puts God on Trial

A fictional drama, based on a historical event is spawning a community forum including local religious leaders.  A Lexington group is the first to stage “The Trial of God” in the Commonwealth.  The forum is being held to foster an interfaith dialogue about the issues raised by the controversial play.

Balagula Theatre, based at Natasha's Cafe in downtown Lexington, is no stranger to what might be called "cutting edge theater." Its latest production is a Tony Award-winning play dealing with a controversial subject not often tackled on stage: a romantic relationship involving a successful business- and family-man and a goat.
