Content advisory: Because of its intense themes, representations of abuse, and use of profanity, this production is recommended for audiences aged 18 and above.
On-site counselors will be available to help guests that might need help processing the intellectual, physical, and emotional experience of Corpus Christi or who may need access to additional support services and resources.
This is a Triangle premiere and the first NC production in more than 20 years of Terrence McNally’s queer passion play Corpus Christi, which reimagines the gospels through the lens of Jesus and the disciples as queer people living in Texas in the 20th century. “McNally uses the Christ story to tell a contemporary tale of the fight against cruelty, division, hatred, and, above all, hypocrisy.” — BackStage.
