Invite you to an Exclusive Sneak Preview Screening of
Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption
A documentary feature inspired by
Terrence McNally’s play Corpus Christi.
In 1998, “Corpus Christi,” a modern day passion play by Tony award winning playwright Terrence McNally, was set to open in New York City but was met with mob-like protests, bomb and death threats. Overshadowed by metal detectors and heightened security, the play fell somewhat into obscurity. Six years ago, LA-based 108 Productions’ revival of the play catapulted into an Internationally Acclaimed tour, even amongst their own continued protests, death threats and face-to-face meetings with the Religious Right. McNally’s script ignited national dialogue and shone the light on religious homophobia, bullying, marriage equality and HIV/AIDS…issues the gay community and our straight allies are still struggling to gain ground on in 2012. This fundraising screening will benefit the I AM Love Campaign and Tour of the film and play.
Saturday, June 9th, 7:00 in the Hamptons at Incarnation Lutheran Church
Screenings will include a light reception with special guests Terrence McNally, filmmakers Nic Arnzen and James Brandon, cast members and many more in attendance. Seating is limited, so please reserve your ticket today.
These fundraiser screenings are generously presented by
Rev. Katrina Foster of Incarnation Lutheran and Norwood, NYC.
