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

UTTERLY deplorable
4 January 2017 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is just a full faced attack on Christianity. I am appalled that something so horrible as this actually exits. For making a mockery of Christianity these folk should be sued. I think it's wrong and very disrespectful to mock another person's beliefs no matter how awkward they maybe to you and for that the cast should be jailed. Freedom of expression does not mean you have the right to cause offence. If your actions are offensive to someone else don't do it especially if they ask you not to and Christians have been against this thing for years now. This is utterly disrespectful and the people involved in this wretched thing have no conscience whatsoever!
