Document presents: The Gospel of Eureka

December 9, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 6:45 pm

gospel-1

Evangelical Christians and drag queens collide in the southern, Arkansas town of Eureka Springs, home to both a massive amphitheatre performing the Passion Play every year and a local gay bar with a tradition of gospel-inspired drag. Despite chasms in political and religious viewpoints, the townspeople are universally charming and warm, even whilst battling over a historic vote on an anti-discrimination ordinance. The Gospel of Eureka takes a personal and often comical look at negotiating differences between religion and belief through performance, political action, and partnership. Narrated by artist and performer, Mx Justin Vivian Bond.

In partnership with Document Human Rights Film Festival, which takes place 30 November to 2 December at Scottish Youth Theatre in Glasgow’s Merchant City. See documentfilmfestival.org for more details.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.
