Description

Jesus Hopped the A Train is a stark and sobering examination of life, death, salvation, and what it takes to be a “good” person. The play revolves around the relationship between two prisoners at Riker’s Island in Manhattan, each of whom believes himself accountable to a higher law than that of the judicial system. Angel Cruz has shot the leader of a religious cult to which he lost his best friend. Lucius Jenkins is a serial killer awaiting extradition to Florida, guilty of the deaths of at least eight people. During his incarceration, Lucius has found God. Assigned to protective custody at Riker’s, Angel and Lucius meet and find themselves in close company during their daily hour of outdoor exercise. During their time together, they engage in arguments and dialogue about guilt, innocence and higher powers.
