Born in Corpus Christi, Texas in the 1950s, Joshua is a gay man who also happens to be the son of God. Terrence McNally’s contentious work is a modern queer retelling of the gospels depicting Jesus and the Apostles as gay men living in modern-day Texas. Known as the queer passion play, Corpus Christi follows Joshua from his birth in a seedy motel room to his senior prom, from gay disco to death by crucifixion. Often called blasphemous by religious protestors, this controversial play thoughtfully reframes the identity of the Christ figure while unpacking his essential lessons of love and faith.
