Stage Direction: Original Works: The People's Passion Play

[RETURN TO CATEGORY OVERVIEW]

"This is not a play about religious doctrine, but instead about the way our beliefs inform our behavior... Quest's production emphasizes the social-responsibility aspect of Christ's teachings: freeing the oppressed, caring for the downtrodden, resisting the abusive, impersonal power of the wealthy... and the Beatitudes are re-tooled to include people with HIV, soldiers returned from war, and victims of mass violence. If you long for the days of Joan Baez and a return to Peace and Love, this show will hit your nostalgia button. For the rest, it's a great message wrapped up in good entertainment for all. Highly Recommended." --Chicago Theatre Beat
