CORPUS CHRISTI

By Terrence McNally

 

“He came to die. This is the heart of Christmas.” Rev. Billy Graham


“We are going to tell you an old and familiar story. One you’ve all heard over and over, again and again. One you believe or one you don’t. There’s no suspense and fewer surprises. You all know how it turns out. But it’s a story that bears repeating. Some say it can’t be told enough.”


Joshua has always been different. From His birth in a sleazy motel, through His awkward high school years, He never knew why the sound of hammering echoed in His ears. Even meeting Judas didn’t make it stop. When Joshua accepts that the carpenter’s work is done, He knows He won’t have much time left to do His good work. The voice that has spoken to Him throughout His life is His Father, and the Father’s will is too strong to ignore.


OutFox Productions welcome you to Terrence McNally’s controversial retelling of the Gospel. In Corpus Christi, equality, sexuality and religion collide through simple storytelling, to shed new light on a story with over 2000 years of history.

Performed at The Space 26th November – 14th December 2013.
