"An imaginative new play with humor, insight, and a stellar ensemble."

Maya Phillips, The New York Times, December 6, 2022

A new play by Julia May Jonas (author of the acclaimed novel Vladimir), YOUR OWN PERSONAL EXEGESIS is a bracingly funny and slyly devastating collision of coming-of-age eroticism and religious ecstasy. 

In the sanctuary, hallways and rec rooms of a liberal parish, Brian (Savidu Geevaratne) angles for power, Addie (Mia Pak) attempts transfiguration, and Beatrice (Annie Fang) battles with obscurity. Meanwhile Kat (Hannah Cabell), the youth pastor, can’t stop gazing into the troubled eyes of her congregant Chris (Cole Doman). 

"A very funny and moving new play!"

Vinson Cunningham, The New Yorker, December 12, 2022
