Blasphemy! Sacrilege! Heresy! Terrence McNally’s passion play recounts the birth, death, and resurrection of a young gay man living in Corpus Christi, Texas, scandalizing communities near and far when it first premiered in 1998. Experience the powerful story of Joshua who, different from other boys because of his homosexuality, grows up in isolation and torment. Fleeing his home, he gathers a group of disciples who are drawn to his radical message of love and tolerance. Despite his message of equality, he will suffer the same fate as Jesus who also sought to change a wayward community—its arrogance, its ignorance, and its complacency. Taken from the website.
