The End Times are upon us!
And it’s not a moment too soon ...
The congregants of the Third Baptist Church of Uncertain, Texas are only certain about two things:
The Rapture is definitely happening for sure sometime in the next two hours (the Bible math checks out)
And two hours is not enough time to squeeze every single drop of life before leaving this wicked, wonderful world
But some of them will try
Raptured is a fresh farce, full of love triangles, mistaken identities, a puckish youth pastor, a preacher on a dubious mission, and doors
Lots of doors
And when the cosmic clock is ticking, who you are and what you really want is the greatest revelation of all
“To say I enjoyed RAPTURED is an understatement. I basically laughed for two hours and I’m still chuckling the next day. We all can use a great laugh.” —Ann Saucer, The Column
“A divinely-entertaining comedic feast … dripping with double entendre and crowd-pleasing innuendo.” —Shawn Statler, onstageblog.com
“Lyle especially is adept at absurdist, Texas-based comedies ... and he has a good-ol’-boy-time poking the bear of Baptist hypocrisy.” —Arnold Wayne Jones, Dallasvoice.com
“What makes RAPTURED such phenomenal comedy is Lyle and Coleman’s astonishing instincts. Their timing, lingo, imagination, blue streak and sense of absurdity are the stuff of genius.” —sharpcritic.com
