Restorative justice and pies will come together in a live performance of “I’d Like to Buy an Enemy,” by Ted & Company on Sunday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. in Park View Mennonite Church.

The one-night interactive event blends laughter and thoughtful dialogue and “peace pies.” The evening includes a hand-crafted pie auction where 100 percent of pie sales will go toward the support of local peace and reconciliation work.

Ticket prices are $12, $10 for students and seniors (60+), and children ages 6 and under are free. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Center for Interfaith Engagement at Eastern Mennonite University and the Fairfield Center of Harrisonburg.

The tour kicked off in spring 2012 with six shows across eastern Pennsylvania and the Midwest, surpassing expectations of organizers. Volunteers donated almost 300 pies and the total amount raised for peace exceeded $30,000.

Peace, Pies and Prophets unpacks issues of justice and peacebuilding through humorous and poignant storytelling. It gives participants an opportunity to engage in the ongoing story of God’s restorative work in our world and our neighborhood – speaking across denominations, generations and backgrounds, for people who aim to be the change we seek, according to the Ted & Company website.

A preview of the show and a recap of the first leg of the tour is available on the Ted & Company website. Contact Center for Interfaith Engagement at 540-432-4674 or email gretchen.maust@emu.edu for more information.
