Saint Jo, Scribe of Our Souls

Jo Clifford, playwright, sainted on Old Queens’ Day (June 3rd) 2022 at Augustine United Church. Jo has been recognised for her transformative work in theatre, including the groundbreaking play The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven.

Jesus Queen of Heaven is a loving celebration of Jesus in the gospels re-imagined as a trans woman: the play has been condemned by archbishops, loved by audiences, and performed in churches and theatres across the world, from Scotland to Brazil. The performer is always a transgender actor, and this starring role has opened doors for many trans performers in theatre.
