It is more that two thousand years since the crucifixion and these are troubled times in the Kingdom of Heaven. All-too-fond of turning water into wine and dating female celebrites, a disillusioned Jesus reckons that God is past it. After God’s disasterous debut on Sky News and the re-emergence of old foe Satan, relations between father and son reach a new low – but then the Virgin Mary makes a suprise return to their lives. Suddenly God is in love and Jesus faces a very uncertain future.
Jesus-The Wasted Years transposes the pressures of celebrity, loss of power and the disintegration of relationships onto the most famous family of all time. What happens to a powerful family when it loses touch with its people and discovers that their subjects think they can manage very well without them?
