And introducing Jake Bowman as John XII
Directed by Mark-Brian Sonna
Who was John XII? A backstabbing, bitchy, conniving, manipulative, sexy, lustful, and wickedly funny man that changed the world. His real name was Octavius, and for 8 years he ruled the world. He was a lover of women and men, and he was appointed Pope at the age of 18. Was he a devil or a saint? You decide. This comedic drama is based on the historical, outrageous, and controversial events surrounding John’s ascent to the papacy. This play contains adult language, sexual situations, and brief male nudity. No one under 18 allowed.
