In "JACKLEG" we discover that sometimes bad preachers happen to good people. The congregation at Blessed Hope Missionary Baptist Church has hired a new pastor, but in this case the Devil is not just in the details, but in the preacher himself. There's an "unholy war" going on at this church, and the backroom politics make congress look like a bunch of amateurs. While the Board digs up dirt on their new pastor, the good reverend makes a little dirt of his own to hang on to his position.
All tickets for "JACKLEG" can be purchased online here. General seating is $15.00, with $12.00 tickets for seniors, students and groups of ten or more with advance purchase.
