|The beautiful simplicity of biblical monologues is combined with a wreath of thorns bearing seven candles which are solemnly extinguished one by one to count down to Christ's crucifixion. Six costumed characters share brief point-of-view reflections about their encounters with Jesus, then conclude by extinguishing one candle on the wreath each Sunday of Lent. Biblical characters included are: Peter; Dora, the woman at the well; Marah, the woman who washed Jesus' feet; Nicodemus; Stephanus, the rich young ruler and Judith, a servant girl. Also included is an Easter Sunday presentation where the characters reprise their roles and together relight the Christ candle, for "He is risen as he said!"
