The most controversial and talked about play of 1998 begins: “We are going to tell you an old and familiar story.” It parallels the New Testament. Its subject; the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus. But McNally’s Christ is the character Joshua, a young man born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas. Joshua is homosexual and grows up in isolation and torment, an object of scorn. He flees Corpus Christi in search of a more accepting environment, gathering a group of disciples who are bound to him by his message of love and tolerance. Will his plea, that we look upon all souls as equal, fall unattended?
