THE ICE ROOM (one-act)

It’s time for Summer Bible School—and this year, it’s going to be next-level. When a clash of ideals threatens the most important event of the year, three church colleagues learn the hard way that the corporate power of American Christianity is a force to be reckoned with. An Evangelical comedy of manners, THE ICE ROOM tackles indoctrination, passion, and hypocrisy in one of the biggest industries on earth.

THE ICE ROOM (one-act)

    A biting, smart satire, Maestri’s dialogue is sharp and painfully funny. She has an eye for the ridiculous, and perfectly captures the absurdity of everyday human interactions. Unlike many satirical works, her characters feel all too real. While reading, one senses the wish to understand and illuminate the motivations of the people she pokes fun at. Her heightened style allows for the most unexpected actions to occur and yet feel grounded in her very specific version of reality.
