THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO
JESUS QUEEN OF HEAVEN
at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe
A candlelit, peaceful, meditative end to a hard day on the Fringe.
The archbishop of Glasgow called this vision of a transgendered Jesus 'an affront to the Christian faith'. He never saw it. Listen to those who did:
'Queen Jesus reminds us of the purity of sex and pleasure, the importance of empathy. We hold hands, and remember what it means not to be alone'. Jo Clifford's revolutionary and spiritual work reaches the Fringe for the first time since its explosive and controversial 2009 opening. It promises to be very special.
Reviews for "Gospel According To Jesus, Queen Of Heaven"
“Surely one of the most remarkable shows of the Fringe"
"Entering Clifford’s “queendom of heaven” is a thought-provoking, moving and uplifting experience."
"This is a show that demands to be seen."
