'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 starts in the 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 later been seen alive. Tenniel, in a dramatic rush to the Jerusalem office, interviews not only the political and religious hierarchy but notably the followers of Davidson himself. Whilst offering these eye-witness accounts of the Resurrection, the play follows one man’s journey from cynical reporter to agnostic enquirer, and a surprise ending. This play, adapted from the novel by Stuart Jackman, is performed by nine actors from the group Actors Emeritus who will take over the interior of St Mary the Virgin, North Stoke, Amberley BN18 9LS. PALM SUNDAY 14 April at 3. Tickets £12.50 from Janet Aidin (contact details below).
