News   "Playing With Redemption," Documentary About Terrence McNally's Corpus Christi, Will Be Released on DVD
 
Breaking Glass Pictures will release "Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption," a feature documentary focusing on Terrence McNally's controversial Off-Broadway play Corpus Christi, Oct. 14 on DVD and VOD.

Corpus Christi imagines Jesus as a gay man living in modern-day Texas.

The documentary, according to press notes, "follows the troupe, Terrence, and audience around the world on a 5-year journey, where voices of protest and support collide on one of the central issues facing the LGBT community: religion."

Corpus Christi opened at the Manhattan Theatre Club in 1998 to protest and bomb threats. McNally, who is currently represented on Broadway with the new comedy It's Only a Play, is a four-time Tony Award winning playwright.

"Fourteen years after Corpus Christi premiered in New York, I am thrilled that 108 Productions continues to perform the piece all over the world," said playwright McNally in a previous statement. "'Playing With Redemption' and the I AM Love Campaign add a new dimension to the conversation that my play continues to provoke, and I look forward to Corpus Christi starting many more conversations around the country."
