A KING, A QUEEN AND A GAY JESUS
Corpus Christi, by Terrance McNally
If ignorance was a virtue, would acceptance be its sin? What if Jesus were gay? More importantly, SO WHAT, if Jesus were gay? This controversial production explores the passion and persecution of Christ's life through the eyes of young gay men. The story is inclusive, reverent, spiritual and sexy. Directed by Greg Bishop, the show features a cast of thirteen young men who strip away the layers and will have you falling to your knees. (ticket info)
The Singing Butler, by Randie Parliament
This production unveils a family's secrets of shame and betrayal, through the eyes of a Drag Queen (Jeff Gonek). Father abandonment, scandal, with plenty of booze and drugs, this show will certainly have the audience intrigued and wondering more about the family under the microscope. The show features Luke Day, Stevie Jackson, Cody Sparshu, Nancy von Euw, Darcy Millar, Liam LaMarre, Julien Hicks and Kieylla Thornton-Trump. (ticket info)
Exit the King, by Eugene Ionesco (translated by Geoffrey Rush and Neil Armfield)
Set in purgatory, this hilarious and poignant comedy follows a megalomaniacal ruler, King Berenger, whose incompetence has left his country in near ruin for 400 years. Despite the efforts of Queen Marguerite and members of the court to convince the King he only has 90 minutes to left to live, he refuses to relinquish any control. (ticket info)
