A radical new play about the early life of Jesus that explores how his illegitimate birth led him to believe he was the son of a god. Son Of Man explores this ancient and repressed controversy in a historical drama that delves deeply into the intersections between religion and personal identity.
Who is Jesus? How was he born and to who? Which cultures influenced him? Where did his ideas come from? Was he the product of a god or the product of his environment?
Son Of Man is a dark and unforgiving insight into one boy's journey to find peace and acceptance in a deceptive and manipulative world. With themes of family, identity, colonisation and belief abound. Son of Man asks how our experiences shape our beliefs and how they may have shaped one of history’s most influential figures.
