Jesus Moonwalks: Marcus Gardley's Poetic Remix of Myth and History 

When: Nov. 1-5 2017
Saint Mary’s College Theatre Program presents … and Jesus Moonwalks the Mississippi. Playwright Marcus Gardley (black odyssey) is one of our most sensitive and playful interpreters of living legacies. In Jesus Moonwalks, he stitches Greek myth, Black folklore, Biblical riffs and child’s play into the tale of two families, riven by the turbulence of the Civil War, as they get ready for a day of revelations and reunions. The results are an American quilt of pain and grace.

Guest artist Ken Prestininzi directs this collaboration with Oakland School for the Arts, which features vocalists Michelle Jacques and members of CHELLE’S Juke Joint.
