Lucas’s play The Christians is about influence and faith in a megachurch, and the majority of the cast is a church “spirit-raising choir.”

The plot revolves around a pastor who abandons traditional fundamentalist Christianity in favor of a more inclusive and universalist Christianity that acknowledges the goodness in other religions, and the impact this has on his congregation.

It was produced at the Humana Festival of New American Plays in Louisville, Kentucky in 2014, and it premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons on August 28, 2015 (previews), closing on October 25, 2015. 

Les Waters directed the cast, which included Andrew Garman as “Pastor Paul,” Larry Powell as “Associate Pastor Joshua,” Linda Powell as “Elizabeth,” Phillip Kerr as “Elder Jay,” and Emily Donahoe as “The Congregant.”

On December 1, 2016, the play had its Chicago premiere at Steppenwolf Theatre Company, directed by K. Todd Freeman; a Chicago Sun-Times reviewer called it a “thought-provoking play.”

Following that, it premiered on January 24, 2017, at the San Francisco Playhouse in the San Francisco Bay Area, directed by Bill English.
