Writer/performer Thea Deley tackles the most sacred of topics in her solo show,
Jesus Loves You! (but hates me) One woman's journey from believer to blasphemer.
You might wonder if you’ve mistakenly stepped into a church when you first enter the theater. Don’t worry! You’ve simply stumbled into Thea’s childhood, and you’re in for an hilarious ride.
You’ll meet the Sunday School teacher who warned Thea about brushing with Satan’s toothpaste. You’ll meet the Bible Study friend who wanted to protect Thea’s virginity. (Although too late for Thea, you’ll have a shot at Secondary Virginity during her show!) You might even meet her college boyfriend who thought God communicated via heavenly hair dryer.
You’ll compete for cool irreverent prizes during audience games like Bible Feud and Morally Twisted. And just like in real life, every couple of minutes you’ll be treated to a commercial for a product you don’t need, like Communion On-the-Go or No Sins Too Small Stoning Kits.
Likened to her idols Carol Burnett and Lily Tomlin, Thea brings to life 10 different characters during her multimedia show. Many come directly from her own life, while others are composites of people she heard about from friends or read about in the news.
