Storyline

Inspired by Terrence McNally's Passion Play told through the lens of a young gay Jesus, Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption follows a group of actors who began production on the play seven years ago in a small church. Within months they suddenly found themselves thrust in the world spotlight touring to international acclaim. The documentary follows the troupe and the playwright sharing their stories with supporters and protesters as they continue their tour across the world to communities where hate and bigotry are much more prevalent. Mirroring the reflections of dialogue in society today, especially in regards to civil rights, marriage equality, HIV/AIDS, and separation of church and state, this production has become a vehicle of change for a community struggling to find its voice. Meanwhile, the company of actors find themselves on a journey that would forever change their lives. Written by James Brandon & Nic Arnzen

Excellent story of LOVE!!!!
11 July 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have read (a couple times) the amazing screenplay of Corpus Christi: Playing With Redemption by the ever so talented Terrence McNally and to me it is an extremely powerful play filled with a message of LOVE, unconditional LOVE. I am really looking forward to seeing this documentary written by James Brandon and Nic Arnzen come to life with it's cast of very talented actors, I am sure I won't be disappointed. I hope that viewers give this documentary a chance by seeing it for themselves to understand the story that is being told and tell others what a great story this is. We are all born equal and this is depicted in Corpus Christi: Playing With Redemption, I hope this documentary helps towards ending homophobia and religious bullying.
