Terrence McNally's CORPUS CHRISTI Featured in New Documentary Coming to DVD

What if Jesus was gay? Breaking Glass Pictures will be releasing Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption, a feature documentary focusing on Terrence McNally's controversial off-Broadway play "Corpus Christi," which imagines Jesus as a gay man living in Corpus Christi, Texas. The documentary follows the troupe, Terrence, and audience around the world on a 5-year journey, where voices of protest and support collide on one of the central issues facing the LGBT community: religion.

The play originally opened at the Manhattan Theatre Club in 1998 to intense protest and bomb threats. Terrence McNally is a four-time Tony Award winning playwright, famous for Broadway hits Ragtime, Master Class, and Love! Valour! Compassion!

"Playing with Redemption and the I AM Love Campaign add a new dimension to the conversation that my play continues to provoke, and I look forward to CORPUS CHRISTI starting many more conversations around the country." - Terrence McNally

Breaking Glass Pictures will release the documentary on DVD and VOD (iTunes, Comcast, Vubiquity) on October 14, 2014.
