Theatre Review: Faithless pleases even the heathens

By Stephanie Shewchuk

All in the space of seconds, two men switch from masquerading as husband and wife to playing temperamental siblings. Then, just as quickly, they’re father and son. Co-authors and performers Chris Craddock and Steve Pirot manage to pull off the numerous characters in this religion-infused drama with humor and a real sense of believability. In just under two hours, Faithless explores the more serious matters of piety and the afterlife with a certain breeziness that makes the controversial issues extremely palatable. Although questions concerning faith and fundamental beliefs will undoubtedly arise as a result of this production, Faithless is hilarious above all else.
