MAP Fund Supports The Three Christs!

 

We’re excited to announce that the MAP fund has lent its support to our project with Corey Dargel, The Three Christs.  The Three Christs is a 90-minute music-theater piece inspired by true stories of people who believe they are Jesus Christ.  It takes a sideways look at the concept of fundamental beliefs.  It distorts and transforms real-life case studies of psychiatric patients with Messianic delusions by incorporating Christian gay-rehabilitation therapy sessions, visions of the Virgin Mary, and a psychologist who, it turns out, may be as delusional as his patients.  The piece is scored for four singers (including Dargel) and Newspeak, with a book by playwright Honor Molloy and stage direction by Emma Griffin.
