Jesus of Montreal

Old Quest- difference of Jesus and Christ of faith. Actors research Jesus before play

No Quest- Actors portraying what they wanted

Third Quest- No regard for church opinion

Many scenes are parallel to bible. Daniel starts becoming Jesus. He helps save his co-actors from their lives that are difficult in different ways.

Purpose was to take traditional Jesus story and apply it morally and ethically to the real world.

Important theme- disregard for commercialization and capitalism. Actors become famous but don’t get agents and try to get rich.
