4th Wall Theatre Company presents Jesus Hopped The "A" Train
Jesus Hopped The "A" Train tells the story of Angel Cruz, a bike messenger from New York City who is awaiting trial in Rikers Island prison for shooting the leader of a religious cult in the “ass.” He is on his knees, alone and terrified, trying to say a prayer he no longer remembers to a God he has all but forgotten. Angel’s court appointed attorney, Mary Hanrahan, is lucky if she can keep her client’s names straight. His guards are indifferent. Worse, Angel is subject to repeated inmate brutality, landing him in protective custody, where he finds himself in the company of a charismatic serial killer named Lucius Jenkins, a born-again believer who will change the course of Angel’s life forever.
