The premise for “Waiting for the Host: An Online Play” is it’s April 2020 and COVID19 is raging through New York City. A church pastor still wants to produce his church’s annual Easter passion play… online. He gathers a cast of actors on Zoom to rehearse. As they grapple with the various challenges of videoconferencing, isolation, and potential contagion, they also rediscover the enduring power of human connection. This production is the regional premiere of the work.
