Stageworks Theatre says
If you don't know the gritty beauty of playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis' work, he just won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and his hit, "The Mother****er With the Hat" opens at Stageworks on July 9.

Now's your chance to experience an electrifying reading of "Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train," directed by award-winning actor and USF Theatre professor Fanni V Green. It's a powerful meeting of two prisoners on Riker's Island who share one precious hour of sunlight each day, the rest of their long hours in solitary.

The script tackles "the impositions and interconnections of institutions and people," Green explains. "His characters speak truth and burning. That's cool beans."

Eddie Gomez - Jesus
