MCC Theater presents Robert Askin's ('Hand to God') new comedy about our all-too-human impulse to make order out of the chaos of modern relationships. More…
Eric and Cyndy are looking for some direction. They’ve decided to follow the lead of their friends Zach and Shelley and make the real life practice of Christian Domestic Discipline the foundation of their marriage.
