General Admission: $15 Thursdays, $20 Fridays and Saturdays Student Admission with valid ID: $10 The Devil's Passion (or Easter in Hell) By Justin Butcher American Premiere. By turns comic, gripping, poetic, and heart-stirring, The Devil's Passion offers a radically fresh perspective on a timeless narrative. British satirist, playwright and actor Justin Butcher has created an audacious hell's-eye-view of the Passion of Christ. John J. O'Hagan, who has worked in professional and academic theatre for the past 20 years,stars in this one-man tour de force. John has worked with numerous companies in the Pacific Northwest including two seasons with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and toured with the OSF School Visit Program. John taught acting, directing and stage combat at the University of Wyoming for five years, and is currently an Associate Professor of Theatre at Principia College.

"The nuance of Butcher's writing and the intelligence and rigour of its theology make 'The Devil's Passion' such a worthwhile and forceful piece of theatre … deeply engaged with a radical conception of spiritual reconciliation … theological expansiveness [and] fascinating elasticity of thought." The Stage & Television Today "One of the most remarkable evenings I have spent in the theatre." David Suchet (BBC's Hercule Poirot) "Personally, I left remembering why I ... find his story and the story of the broader Bible so compelling - and, dare I say it, wanting to engage deeper with my faith."
