The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven by Jo Clifford
A revolutionary queer ritual in which bread is shared, wine is drunk and familiar stories are reimagined by a transgender Jesus.
Join Queen Jesus for a revolutionary queer ritual in which bread is shared, wine is drunk and familiar stories are reimagined by a transgender Jesus.
This unique show combines theatre with storytelling and ritual to produce a rare and beautiful reflection on the life of Jesus, a transgender one, and a provocative meditation on a more truthful and generous interpretation of her words. It imagines Christianty’s message of love extending to embrace all those traditionally excluded because of their sexuality or gender.
Jo Clifford’s legendary play makes its Australasian debut with Kristen Smyth in the iconic role
