Through a series of heartfelt monologues, we view the events of Holy Week through the eyes of Mary (the Mother of Jesus), Salome, and Mary Magdalene. Along the way, we are brought to recognize that the testimonies of these three women could very well be our own. We, too, have sinned. We, too, have suffered disappointment, loss, and pain. Most importantly, we must all question what Jesus’ redemptive act means for us personally. This is a mature meditation for mature actors, and the impact is most effective with adults cast in the roles. Although child actors are not forbidden, lines such as “I know how it feels to stand alone in the dark and wonder what it all means” and “The whole world seemed the graveyard of our hopes” are just not as convincing when coming from the mouths of babes. As they study their parts, the three women in the cast will quickly notice that certain lines from their monologues are eventually repeated in the second part of the meditation. These lines tease out the universal steps that all of us take on the way to salvation and help to personalize the message for listeners. Because these lines are so important, it’s vital that they’re given time to breathe. When these lines are first spoken during the monologues, be sure that they’re slowed down and emphasized, perhaps even with a tiny cushion of silence bracketing each one.
