In Corpus Christi, McNally gives us his own unique view of the story of Christ, depicting Jesus and the Apostles as gay men living in modern-day Texas.
“A serious, even reverent retelling of the Christ story in a modern idiom—quite close, in its way, to the original…If the point is to make Jesus’ teachings live for a contemporary audience, activist Christians should be hailing this play, not trying to suppress it…One of McNally’s best, most moving and personal works. His updating of the Christ story is witty, but not patronizing, as sober and cleansing as a dip in baptismal waters.” — Time Magazine.
