Inside the lockdown wing of Rikers Island prison, a frightened young man accused of murdering a cult leader is confronted with a charismatic born-again serial killer and a sadistic guard. Will one man’s redemption lead to another’s damnation?
This critically acclaimed dark-comedy examines the American justice system and the contradictory nature of faith.
As well as being directed by Kate Hewitt, the creative team for the production includes designs by Magda Will, costume design by Kinnetia Isidor, lighting design by Guy Hoare and sound design by Peter Rice.
Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train will play at the Young Vic Theatre from the 14th February until the 30th March.
