It is impossible not to be affected by the text and the performance.

wine is drunk and familiar stories are reimagined by a transgender Jesus.

Lyn Gardner, Guardian
"moving and infinitely graceful...deserves more than a star rating....It's a humane, mischievous and loving solo show, one in which bread is shared, wine is drunk and the familiar stories of the New Testament are reimagined. In the process, the world is also reimagined – as a far better, kinder and more tolerant place."
“profound, moving, witty and filthy, a wake-up call to tolerance, love and
acceptance with an intoxicating secular potency”
