The Bush administration is refusing to comment on allegations that Jesus Christ, Son of God, was detained as an ‘illegal combatant’ in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. In 2002, U.S. immigration officials reported questioning a bearded, Middle-Eastern man who – when asked to state the purpose of his visit – informed them that he was ‘on a mission from God’ which involved ‘dying as a religious martyr’.
The man was promptly arrested under the Patriot Act and sent to Guantanamo. Only after he left Cuba – in circumstances which remain unclear – was the man identified as Jesus. In a move that is likely to embarrass the already beleaguered U.S. President, Christ plans to talk exclusively about His experiences in a forthcoming show at the Project Arts Centre, entitled Jesus: The Guantanamo Years.
Expect plenty of laughs, some songs, a bit of audience participation and a Pythonesque puppet-show in this debut performance of Jesus: The Guantanamo Years.
