United Solo Festival to Feature JESUS, DO YOU LIKE ME? PLEASE MARK YES OR NO, 11/8
Jesus, Do You Like Me? Please Mark Yes or No. is a solo theatre play written and performed by Cincinnati-based artist Eileen Tull. Jesus will have its New York premiere on November 8th at the 2013 United Solo Festival.
Jesus chronicles an hour in the life of a mess, a young woman who tries to find purpose and validation in her life by organizing an event in which Jesus can feel free to finally return from the dead again. Guided by a mystical sweet potato sent from God, she pours her heart, soul, and all of her money into putting on the show. Jesus will be available for questions during and after the performance. Answers to all existential crises guaranteed.
This solo play, developed, written, and performed by Eileen Tull, was created for the San Francisco Fringe Festival. Tull went on to perform the piece in the San Francisco Theater Festival and in Cincinnati, OH.
