Leaping between three eras in time, Ruhl explores the nature of politics, art, and religion through stagings of the Passion of Christ. Set consecutively in 1575 Elizabethan England, 1934 Oberammergau, and post-Vietnam War South Dakota, Ruhl investigates the evolution of this religious ritual while posing universal questions about humanity.
