A proud part of the city-wide Acts of Faith Festival
This highly provocative play tells a story that parallels the New Testament's, and its subject is nothing less than the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus. But McNally's Christ figure is a character named Joshua, a gay young man born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, in the early 1950s. He flees his hometown in search of a more accepting environment, gathering along the way a group of disciples who are bound to him by his message of love and tolerance. Joshua delivers his Sermon on the Mount, and officiates at a gay marriage ceremony, but, inevitably, his radical teachings (like Jesus's) will not deliver him from his fate.
