Communion is a one-man show about a gay Catholic school teacher who is fired when the church discovers that he married a man. His termination causes a crisis of faith, not only for himself but for his entire community. Based on the real-life story of Broadway actor and playwright Matthew LaBanca, Communion spotlights themes of delusion, spiritual trauma, and hope, reminding those who would use religion to discriminate against LGBTQ people that the most basic tenet of spiritual life is that we are called to love one another.
Written and performed by Matthew LaBanca, directed by Kira Simring, projection music and sound by Julianne Merrill, additional projections by Ryan Belock, set and costumes by Rodrigo Hernandez, production stage management by Richard Urquiza, technical direction by Julian Singer-Corbin, associate producer Mara Jill Herman, co-producer Ron Lasko/Spin Cycle NYC.
