SYNOPSIS

Badac's new piece "Lunatics" is an intense and physical exploration of the betrayal of Jesus, his crucifixion, the grief of his supporters following his death and the beginnings of the Christian Church.

Centered around the first meeting of his main disciples and the two women present at his execution, Mary Magdelene and Salome, we experience the initial explosion of grief and the subsequent insanity that then envelopes the followers as they realise their Messiah has been murdered.

We watch as blame and retribution overtakes the group, as the Crucifixion is replayed and as the women drive the men to the point of destruction through their assertion that Jesus' death was due to their betrayal and cowardice.

Overcome by guilt, grief and  mental illness the men are then beaten and manipulated by the women into becoming the foundation of the Christian church and we understand that the core of the Christian religion, its philosophies and ideas, were born from grief, violence and insanity.

As with all of Badac's previous work Lunatics has been created using both historical research and Badac's unique Theatre of Violence philosophy.
