Jesus is the reason for the season in this ruthless comedy about a Christian family who claim all you need is love. Written by Leslye Headland (Russian Doll and Bachelorette), the stage is set for another Christmas at the Dahl home, where the four children were raised to love Jesus and each other. Now adults with beliefs of their own, they still perform joyous carols and bizarre family rituals, fueled by alcohol and forced cheer — until it all descends into chaos. Fierce and provocative, Cult of Love dares to examine a unique brand of family cruelty under all that holiday cheer.
