Crusade

August 9–18, 2019 at Baltimore Theatre Project

The third show of Rapid Lemon Productions' 2019 "Season of Belief" is a collaboration with the Baltimore Playwrights Festival: CRUSADE, a world premiere by local playwright Bruce Bonafede, directed by Timoth David Copney.


It is the future. The takeover of the federal government by Christian fundamentalists, and their assault on the Constitution, has led to civil war. On reconnaissance patrol in the Rocky Mountains, an Army squad is forced to take cover in an isolated cabin owned by a former professor who now wants only to be left alone. A chain of events tests their character and is resolved in a moment of violence that seals their fate.
