BWW Feature: CORPUS CHRISTI at Table Of Hope MCC

Written in response to the murder of Matthew Shepard in 1998, the play's story parallels the New Testament account of the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus. In McNally's version the Christ figure is named Joshua, born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, in the early 1950s. Joshua, who is gay, leaves Corpus Christi to find a more accepting environment and gathers a group of disciples with his message of love and tolerance. The play is rated R for adult language, simulated violence and adult themes.

Featuring Kyle Gallegos-Lessin, Teri Mott, Duane Ellis Jackson, Paula Makar, Lucas Styles Lowry, Fred Blair, Tyler Gallegos-Lessin, Michele Janssens, Emily Graves, Kalene Blanton, Max Wilson, William Day, and David Raehpour. Directed by Shaun-Michael Morse.
