Someday is Today
(a new play in development)
Manny Chavez never expects his work day to transform into an odyssey, but as Jesus comes to life and pleads for his freedom from the cross that is exactly what occurs.
What starts off as a routine day turns into a magical feast as Jesus engages Manny in provocative conversations punctuated with farcical dance numbers and songs that feel somber and raw, and at other times fresh and contagiously hopeful that humanity’s collective enlightenment is close at hand.
As the characters become immersed in their stories the viewer bears witness to the repositioning of historic religious figures, is called on to contemplate sexual mythologies, and rethink the nature of prayer, love, and forgiveness.
