The Pastor Phelps Project: a fundamentalist cabaret
Warning! Bible preaching ahead! Pastor Fred Phelps and the good people of the Westboro Baptist Church are here to explain why God hates fags and America is doomed. It's homophobia versus burlesque in a musical cabaret showdown. Stare into the abyss of fundamentalism; sexy political satire with razor wire barbs.
The Pastor Phelps Project was originally produced as a part of the 2008 Summerworks Theatre Festival at The Cameron House, 408 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON.
