“The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven”

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.
