'The Davidson Affair' a play for Eastertide at North Stoke
A modern drama ponders the Resurrection. By Ian MacGregor from the book by Stuart Jackman.
THE DAVIDSON AFFAIR - A MODERN PLAY FOR EASTER.
The scene begins in the head office of the Rome Herald and the time is now. Chief investigative journalist Cass Tenniel has heard rumours from Jerusalem about a political prisoner, Jesus Davidson, who has been hanged for treason but has since been seen alive. Tenniel, rushing to the paper's Jerusalem office, interviews not only the political and religious hierarchy involved, but significantly the followers to Davidsdon himself. While it offers theses eye-witness accounts of the Resurrection, the play follows one's man journey from cynical reporter to agnostic enquirer, with a surprise ending. The play, adapted from the novel by Stuart Jackman, is read and performed by a cast of nine from the group of (ex-) professionals Actors Emeritus. They will take over the interior of St Mary the Virgin, North Stoke on PALM SUNDAY 14 April at 3.
