Winner of the 2022 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play, A Case for the Existence of God is a transcendent work of empathy and catharsis by MacArthur Fellow Samuel D. Hunter, writer of the recent Oscar-nominated film The Whale. After meeting at their daughters’ daycare, Ryan and Keith form an unlikely friendship, navigating fatherhood, loneliness, and the confounding terms of a mortgage loan. With thoughtful humor, honesty, and theatricality, Hunter brings together the lives of these two ordinary men, who, for different reasons, are outsiders to the systems that control their fate.
