Jesus Jello: The Miraculous Confection – Toronto Fringe 2013 Press Release

From press release:


Jesus Christ! Miles Wilson bumps his head and sees Jesus Christ in his Lemon Lime hospital Jell‐O. This “Miracle” captures the attentions of his bored family, a disenchanted gay couple, an elderly widow. Oh. And God. Was he sent a delicious jiggly message, or is it a concussion? Come decide for yourself over snacks and songs as Zaw Theatre Presents, Jesus Jell‐o. The Miraculous Confection. A dark comedy about faith, hope, and the need for a miracle.

Jesus Jello-O was first performed at the Montreal Fringe Festival in 2010. The production received rave reviews and packed houses. As the recipient of The Mainline Next Stage Award it was subsequently remounted in December of 2010.

Hugely Funny. – MacRae Campbell. The Charlebois Post
