As Still Waiting (Part II of Waiting for the Host) opens, the coronavirus lockdown drags into its third month. Members of a Long Island church find themselves bitten by the “acting bug” after having performed a streaming version of the Palm Sunday Passion Play. With the help of a “professional director” guest from Manhattan, they hope to launch a new community theatre at the church. To their surprise, the Bishop and church leadership found their Passion Play objectionable, and their plans are met with resistance. They decide to put on a showcase of their skills, with an “updated” version of medieval Biblical plays, and find they win the support of an invited but unexpected guest.
The show will take place entirely on Zoom.
