COTTON PATCH GOSPEL Opens this Friday at Hanover Tavern, 1/25-4/28

Virginia Repertory Theatre announces the opening of Cotton Patch Gospel on Friday, January 25, 2013 at Hanover Tavern, 13181 Hanover Courthouse Road. The show is part of the Acts of Faith Theatre Festival and will run through April 28. Adapted from the books by Clarence Jordan, the musical by Tom Key and Russell Treyz retells the Gospels of Matthew and John set in the mid-20th-century American South.
Cotton Patch Gospel is based on the writings of Clarence Jordan, a farmer and New Testament Greek scholar. In 1942, he founded Koinonia Farm, an influential religious community in southwest Georgia that continues to thrive today. Jordan was very involved the civil rights movement and social justice. In an effort to translate both the words and context of the scripture, he wrote several popular "Cotton Patch" adaptations of the New Testament, resetting the lives and preaching of Jesus and the Apostle Paul in contemporary rural Georgia.
