An alternately hilarious and unsettling look at the thorny relationship between politics and religion, playwright Sarah Ruhl uses the traditional dramatic restaging of the final days of Christ as a basis for the exploration of three fascinating historical periods: Elizabethan England, pre-World War II Germany, and Reagan-era America. Startlingly original, epic in scope, yet beautifully human in its effect, Passion Play pits religious dogma, personal faith, and the realities of politics against love, beauty, and truth -- all with Ruhl's signature wit, seductive theatricality, and devastating insight.
