Praise The Lord and Raise The Roof
Praise the Lord and Raise the Roof, written by Celeste B. Walker, is a light-hearted comedy about the fictional town of Rule Hill County, Virginia where residents are concerned because there has been a rash of fires set to predominantly black churches in the southern part of the country.
Throughout the history of black church burnings and the most recently reported fires of black churches over the last few years, African American congregations and the community at large have been on edge and are very concerned and left to wonder “What is going on.”
Given this background, the play is about an African American church that takes in a friendly white drifter amidst fear and suspicion about a rash of local church burnings, and when tragedy strikes must reconcile their own prejudice with their Christianity.
