Breaking up with Jesus
December 9, 2021 - December 12, 2021
By Joey Richards, Ph. D. Candidate
Media Arts Space @ 108 E. Franklin
Returning to the South after eight years away, Joey Richards is forced to confront and come to terms with a turbulent ex. In this autobiographical one-person show, Joey reveals the sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking journey of getting out of a toxic relationship with Jesus Christ. Grounded in small-town Georgia and blending comedy and tragedy, this is the story of how religion affects family, struggles with gender and sexuality, and issues of depression and anxiety. The performance is an attempt to address the question, “What happens when you realize that the Jesus-shaped hole in your life is really a scar?”
