Corpus Christi by Terrence McNally at The Space
OutFox Productions presents Corpus Christi by Terrence McNally, directed by John Fricker, at The Space, in Isle of Dogs, east London, from 26 Nov to 14 Dec 2013.
Controversial retelling of the Gospel. In Corpus Christi, equality, sexuality and religion collide through simple storytelling, to shed new light on a story with over 2000 years of history. Joshua has always been different. From His birth in a sleazy motel, through His awkward high school years, He never knew why the sound of hammering echoed in His ears. Even meeting Judas didn’t make it stop. When Joshua accepts that the carpenter’s work is done, He knows He won’t have much time left to do His good work. The voice that has spoken to Him throughout His life is His Father, and the Father’s will is too strong to ignore.
