This documentary about a troupe of actors performing Mc Nally's play leaves one wanting to see the play itself. Unfortunately only very brief extracts of it are shown. Almost all of the film deals with the actors' reactions to it, their lives, their roles, the protesters outside and lots and lots of talking heads. Many issues are not even addressed: why are half the cast women when the play is about Jesus and the 12 Apostles? How is this group that is not paid, but seemingly amateurs, able to survive for years touring the world ? It does however make one want to see the play that affected so many of them so profoundly.
