Wed Jun 20 2012
East London’s Isle of Dogs happily boasts The Space as its community arts hub. Making use of a former, derelict church, the fully restored centre is a homely sort of venue, seating for shows often arranged lounge-style, with tables facing the stage. The bill is an ever-revolving mix of music, theatre, comedy and dance, with an emphasis on presenting fresh work featuring themes that reach out to the local community.

Jesus as a gay man living in modern-day Texas. That's the picture painted by Terrence McNally's controversial retelling of the Gospel, which suggests that Judas' betrayal was rooted in sexual jealousy.
Fringe, Drama, Kids' theatre
