Water into Wine is a brand new live one-man comedy show about Jesus’s top three miracles.
In an unscientific straw poll of people who don’t go to church on social media, James Cary discovered three miracles are a lot more famous than the others:
- Jesus turns water into wine.
- Jesus feeds the five thousand.
- Jesus walks on water.
What does these miracles all have in common?
They are all in the Gospel of John. In fact, Jesus turning water into wine is a John’s gospel exclusive. And it’s happens in Chapter 2 right at the start.
Why does Jesus open with that one? What’s he doing at this wedding? Why did he initially refuse to do the miracles? When did he actually do it? What about Steve and Shirley, or whoever it was who got married? Why aren’t they mentioned?
Delving further and further into story, it turns out that this miracle opens up the whole of John’s gospel.
And James Cary, sitcom writer and stand-up theologian, wants to tell you all about it in his new one-man show.
Water into Wine is a smart, fast-paced comedy show that takes John’s gospel seriously and finds the funny.
The show is previewing in November 2021 and will tour the UK in 2022. Contact James if you want to book a performance at your church or theatre.
