This one comes to us from Josh Healy, a comic, spoken word performer, and activist based in Oakland. Starring Corey Fischer (The Jewish Theater) and Richard Montoya (Culture Clash), Moses and Jesús: The Fight For Immigration Rights finds Judaism’s greatest prophet threatened by a foe of biblical proportions – La Migra. ICE. The Feds.
Faced with the prospect of deportation from the new promised land, Moses turns to the only man who can help – his foulmouthed woodworking pal Jesus… er, Jesús.
Healy writes: Released on the three-year anniversary of Arizona’s anti-immigrant SB 1070 going into effect, ‘Moses and Jesús’ is a comedic call to action for humane immigration reform – and full rights for the 11 million undocumented newcomers to the promised land.
