SCRIPT PREVIEW
Synopsis
Only two talented actors needed for this Holy Week play. The roles of Peter and Mary are challenging and fleshed out in absorbing detail. Their conversation instantly pulls you in with its suspense and secrecy, as Peter furtively looks for the temple police. He is afraid he'll be discovered, but Mary wants to know everything. The disciple gives Jesus' mother the truth. He discloses Judas' betrayal and then the disciples' betrayal, as they ran away when the guards seized Jesus. He then reveals Pilate's decision to crucify three people on the eve of Passover to scare off political demonstrators. Mary despairs that even though Jesus healed and helped many, Rome still rules the world. She feels abandoned by God. Peter gently reminds her, "Sometimes a person has to die in order to really live." Ends just before sunrise on the Sabbath. Eloquent and poignant.
