My Little Plastic Jesus: A conversation with Tim Bratton

My Little Plastic Jesus: A conversation with Tim Bratton

Theatre in your living room, conversations about God in small spaces and touring Canada with a one-man show

In this episode, I chat with Tim Bratton, the Artistic Associate for Burnt Thicket Theatre who’s bringing his My Little Plastic Jesus to living rooms across Canada.

Part confession, part history lesson, part multimedia extravaganza, Tim finds hilarity and heartache as he unpacks his upbringing in evangelical pop culture, examining its folly and redeeming its faith.

We chat about:

  • How Tim developed the coming of age story

  • What writing and performing theatre is like in small spaces

  • Filling the well: the practice Tim incorporates into his life to nurture creativity and faith

  • The story behind the making of My Little Plastic Jesus

  • And more!
