ALL THE GOOD IN THE WORLD

In Williston, North Dakota, a pastor opens his church to the many unemployed men who have come north looking for work during the fracking oil boom. But when he invites a convicted felon to live in his guest bedroom it threatens to destroy his family. A play about faith and how hard it is to know if you are doing the right thing.

    In All The Good in the World, Hinkle infuses the family drama with humor and complexity as he explores the role faith plays in a small town religious family whose world has been interrupted by a stranger in need of "saving." This play asks, can we save ourselves by saving another? Or do we need to save ourselves first? Whether or not you are religious minded, this play offers thought-provoking questions that stay with you.

    A powerful drama that asks the question of how much we should be willing to put on the line to make a difference in the life of another. Where do we get the truth from and are we right to trust faith? Well done.

    All the Good in the World tugs at your heart without being sappy and makes you think without preaching any right answers. It'll get under your skin in the way that good drama should.
