Mother and Sister to Me

Mother and Sister to Me is a powerful retelling of the Passion of Christ from the point of view of the women who were present.  This new play, written in verse form and featuring six original songs based on the Psalms and canticles of the Bible, recreates key moments surrounding the death of Christ:  the anointing of Jesus' feet at Bethany, the trial before Pilate, Peter's denial of Christ, Jesus meeting the women of Jerusalem on the road to Calvary, the crucifixion, and the vigil at the tomb.  The story is told from the perspective of Mary (the sister of Lazarus), the wife of Pilate, the serving woman at the fire, the widow of Nain and two weeping women, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and Mary Magdalene.

Mother and Sister to Me is a chancel drama:  a play designed to be performed in a church sanctuary.  The production features a cast of fourteen (eight men and six women).  Many of the cast are well-known regulars of the Blackfriars acting company, as is the Music Director, Andy Bauer.

Mother and Sister to Me takes the audience deep into the mystery of Christ'
s dying and rising through a dramatic encounter with those who were closest to him.  The play is a perfect way to prepare spiritually for Holy Week and Easter.
