"RUN, SAVE YOURSELVES,
DO NOT MISS THE CRUSADE...

Make no mistake, this is a full two hours containing the kind of plot revelation and family secrets that make us decide how we want to be remembered as a country. Mr. Moss knows he’s throwing down a gauntlet here, and Evangelical audience members sitting side by side with vocal members of the LGBTQ community were all in attendance on the night I saw this chilling performance.”
– Bill Crouch, Stagebuddy

From the writer of the critically acclaimed Death of the Persian Prince comes the award-winning new play, The Crusade of Connor Stephens, where extreme loss shakes a Texas family as it comes to terms with a tragic act of violence. In the midst of widespread media attention, their story becomes an allegory for the national debate over religion, tolerance and the seedlings of hate. With humor and resilience, they will confront the ghosts of the past and discover the brutal universal truths that define the American family in the 21st century.

"A play that comes roaring out the gate like a bull let loose from its corral, tearing up the stage at the Jerry Orbach Theater...
...for two fiery hours before sending us off to think (a lot) about what we have borne witness to. It’s a cri-de-coeur by the playwright, Dewey Moss, who also directs the fine company. He is a man on a mission to shine a light on LGBT issues.”
– Howard Miller, UPSTAGE-DOWNSTAGE

“The Crusade of Connor Stephens is a powerful examination of important issues that plague our society...
...shining a spotlight on bigotry, hatred, and the deadly violence in which they all-too-frequently result. Written and directed by Dewey Moss, the contemporary tragedy, in keeping with today’s headlines, contrasts a spirit of love and acceptance with a climate of judgment and condemnation, and shows the effect vitriolic words can have on innocent lives.”
– Deb Miller, DC METRO ARTS
