About Corpus Christi:
"We are going to tell you an old and familiar story." Born in Corpus Christi, Texas in the 1950s, Joshua is a gay man who also happens to be the son of God. Terrence McNally’s contentious work is a modern queer retelling of the gospels depicting Jesus and the Apostles as gay men living in modern-day Texas. Known as the queer passion play, Corpus Christi follows Joshua from his birth in a seedy motel room to his senior prom, from gay disco to death by crucifixion. Often called blasphemous by religious protestors, this controversial play thoughtfully reframes the identity of the Christ figure while unpacking his essential lessons of love and faith. Of Special Note: Premiering in New York City in 1998, The New York Times published an article linking the uproar in response to the production to the death of gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard. Matthew Shepard's death inspired the creation of The Laramie Project to be proudced by Iron Crow Theatre in June of 2018. Please note that Corpus Christi explores mature themes, contains adult language, sexual content and violence.Corpus Christi may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.

About The Laramie Project:
In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old openly gay student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, and left to die - tied to a fence in the middle of a prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming simply for being gay. His name was Matthew Shepard. Shepard's murder brought national and international attention to the lack of hate crime legislation across the nation and forced a small community to wrestle with it's identity on both the local and national levels. In this groundbreaking docudrama, Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project capture the human voice of Laramie. With just 8 actors playing over 60 roles, The Laramie Project weaves together interviews, journal entries, and published news reports to create a breathtaking theatrical collage exploring the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable. Please note that The Laramie Project explores mature themes, contains adult language, and graphic retellings of violence. The Laramie Project may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 16.
