THE STORY: In a parade of government imprisonment, immaculate conception, religion, politics, cocktails and one articulate working girl, HERESY views the not-so-distant-future through the satiric and hilarious lens of A.R. Gurney.
"HERESY hits the funny bone." —NY Daily News. "The arguments made are compelling—as well as highly critical of the status quo. And Gurney includes just enough humor to make this information easily digestible while not diluting its bite." — "Certainly there is plenty about twenty-first-century American culture and politics to lampoon…A.R. Gurney has taken aim with a modern-day parody of the biblical story of Jesus Christ…[a] clever new satire…sharp comedy." —Huffington Post.
