In The Gospel According to Matthew, Matthew Francis gives his testimony and performs verbatim stories of sinners, teachers, and preachers. Sometimes cathartic, always provocative, this one-man play will inspire and transform the conversation between the Christian Fundamentalist and gay communities. Francis brings to life over 20 characters-- from Fred Phelps, the founder of Godhatesfags.com, to Mel White, the former right-hand to Jerry Falwell who is now a gay activist.
Francis's show was developed over 12 years combining the interview, research and performance techniques of critically-acclaimed playwright and performer Anna Deavere Smith, as well as anecdotes from his own fascinating life story, which together create a truly unique and moving theatrical event about coming out, Oprah and the love of Jesus.
