Anyone familiar with the Westboro Baptist Church and its protests will immediately recognize the title of a new play about a fictional similar church.  "God Hates You" is the play by Emily Dendinger. 

It concerns a young member of the church who realizes, through social media, that her view of the world is not the only one. 

The play gets a reading in Ashland tonight (January 25th), sponsored by the Ashland New Plays Festival.  The playwright and director Chip Walton join us.
