What would happen if Jesus did come back to earth, in the present day, as a trans woman? Join Queen Jesus for a stunning one woman play, a revolutionary queer ritual for these life changing times. Jo Clifford is an award-winning playwright, translator, poet and performer who travels to us from Scotland to share her message of compassion and love. Jo has written more than 100 plays, many of which have been performed all over the world, including being presented at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for over 30 years. The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven, first performed in 2009, has been translated into 7 languages and performed in 9 countries worldwide. This tour is the first time Jo has performed as Queen Jesus in the US.
In celebration of Pride Month, Bombyx Center for Arts and Equity, First Churches of Northampton, Florence Congregational Church, and Translate Gender will host The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven.
The play will be at First Churches of Northampton, 129 Main St.
Doors open at 6:30PM, $10 suggested donation can be given at the door.
