Riding Lights Theatre Company is touring its new Passion Play, Inheritance, weaving the strands of the biblical Passion into a dramatic new narrative, exploring in particular some of Jesus’ encounters with women in the gospels.
Inheritance evokes the community where Jesus lived, the people who knew him best, the powers that brought him to execution. And in the shadow of the cross it casts light on some of the women who Jesus stands alongside, sharing in their suffering.
See Inheritance performed in Bury St Edmunds on:
Thursday 27 March at 7.00 pm at St Edmundsbury Cathedral
Tickets priced £7.50 (under 18s free) available from the Cathedral Office 01284 748720 or www.stedscathedral.co.uk
On a dusty road leading to Jerusalem, a woman stumbles towards her judgement. Just weeks later, Jesus will take the same road, leading to the cross...
in Capernaum, the town they both call home, they are rejected. In the temple where they worship they are condemned. The synagogue leader plots to destroy them both.
Inheritance is more than a play to be performed for an audience; it is also a communal experience of theatre and worship. The performance is structured to ensure that the audience has the time and opportunity to reflect on Christ’s Passion and, finally, to make their own response at the foot of the Cross.
Inheritance is touring to churches, cathedrals and community centres across the UK from 14th March to 19th April.
