About this show

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.
