“A fascinating psychological drama… The show asks questions about what we learn through failure, the importance of forgiveness and the power of redemption… Tremendous.” (York Press)
The disciple chosen to lead, is in pieces. Caught in the crosslight of the flickering candles at the last supper, the torches of Gethsemane, the firelight in the courtyard, by the searching gaze of his Lord, Simon ‘the rock’ is shattered.
As he hangs from the cross, Jesus is surrounded by a jeering crowd, laughing at his claim to be the Son of God. A small group of family and friends stands by until the agony ends. But the great friend who, more than any other, has stood by Jesus throughout the story is conspicuous by his absence. One man is missing – one who knows the truth.
Crosslight draws us into the dramatic events of Christ’s Passion and into the experience of one disciple who failed, despite everything he believed so passionately…
A communal experience of theatre and worship,
Crosslight is touring the UK from the 16th March to 15th April 2017.
