“I just want to say a few things about why we are here or, at least, why I think we are here. The Theatre. For me, it’s one of the few places left that shines any kind of light whatsoever. That’s something to be admired. Cherished.”

Jesus Christ is back and he has chosen a small and rundown theatre to make his long-awaited return. Two separate incidents have prompted his re-appearance. The first involves a homosexual actor in Los Angeles who has been publicly abused. The second incident centres on two young boys, Hasif Al Farran and Daniel Ransom and an encounter at an Athletics Carnival in 1977 that will have a profound impact on at least one of their lives.

The Second Coming explores what we do with the inner landscapes of our souls and whether or not we choose to become active participants in creating ongoing positive change.
