Corpus Christi: Controversial Passion Play
When Corpus Christi opened in New York, two thousand protesters thronged the theater. When it premiered in London, extremists issued a fatwa condemning the playwright to death. Everywhere it's been performed, audiences have been challenged, shocked and enlightened. And the play's outrageous topic? The life and death of Jesus Christ. But in this passion play by Tony winner Terrence McNally (Kiss of the Spider Woman, Ragtime), Jesus and his disciples are gay men living in 1950s Texas. Experience the show's radically inclusive message firsthand and discover why it can, in the words of The New York Times, "win over the biggest skeptic," when Iron Crow Theatre Company presents Corpus Christi at the Baltimore Theatre Project.
This show explores mature themes and religious content, and contains adult language, sexual content and violence. It is recommended for ages 18 and older.
