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

Muhammad was gay and possibly a pedophile?
4 January 2017 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

So there's nothing sacred anymore? Open season? Let's ridiculed and break down each other's religions and beliefs! So what would happen if we make a movie where Muhammad is gay? Nevermind the FACT that he was a pedophile and forced a little 9 year old girl to marry him! This is just a plot for media coverage and to make money. Pushing the artistic boundaries needs to be somehow kept in check. This actually goes against human rights and is intolerable of others most sacred beliefs. Dear Director and Cast: Just because you don't have any moral compass doesn't mean we all have to swallow your nonsense. Absolute rubbish and deplorable!
