Resurrection X
by Synergos

Jan. 28 - Jan. 29

In our original play, the United States is in crisis. Riots are filling the streets. A plague is decimating the population. Government oppression reigns and crime is rampant. The media is manipulating the country into conformity. In the midst of devastation, a strange figure appears. His words are awakening millions, while millions want him dead...His message is spreading. Is he a savior or a villain? Cult leader or great reformer? Son of Chaos or Son of God?

This controversial play explores how American society might react if a figure similar to Christ appeared today.  Who would follow him?  Who would fear him?
