Breaking Up With Jesus

What’s the show about?

Getting out of a toxic relationship is hard, especially when you’re dating Jesus Christ. Joseph Richards blends stand-up and dramatic storytelling on their journey back home to the Southern US to revisit their toxic ex. Along the way, audiences will meet a loving stepdad, a Baptist preacher and a pivotal nightgown. A one-person show dealing with family, gender, sexuality, religion, loss and forgiveness.
