Jesus Christ was born in modern day Corpus Christi, Texas. As a young trans girl she is tormented – as a young woman committed to her beliefs she is persecuted. Her disciples are queer women and non binary people who have become disillusioned with the emptiness of a world untouched by the divine, and join Jesus in order to find meaning beyond “the system” (the Roman Empire) – but uncompromising beliefs require sacrifice. Jesus is betrayed by her lover (a cisgender Judas), is abandoned by the apostles, is tortured and mocked, and is crucified. Corpus Christi is a play about what marginalized people must sacrifice to secure liberation, whether that sacrifice is worthwhile, and the role of spirituality in tough decision making for marginalized people.
