Believing Thomas

One of the disciples of Jesus is widely known as Doubting Thomas. Near the end of his life and living in India, Thomas meets a wise woman to whom he relates his life's experiences. Thomas is concerned that history will only remember him as Doubting Thomas. But is this a bad thing? Did Thomas err? Is it wrong to question one's faith?  Churches sing the praises of this inspirational play. Why is Thomas nicknamed Doubting? Believing Thomas is an exotic and at times comical play about passion and truth. It is many years since the crucifixion and Thomas continues to work for his Lord.

Romeo and Juditha

Romeo and Juditha is about the betrayal, arrest, trial and execution of Jesus as seen through the eyes of five teenagers. William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet involves a tragic tale of two star-crossed lovers. Romeo and Juditha is set in Jerusalem and it too involves a romance between teenagers from families who are at opposite sides of the social, cultural and political divide. The Romans have invaded Judea and surrounding areas and conquered the locals. Romeo is Roman and Juditha is Jewish. The story is set in Jerusalem at the time of the crucifixion of Jesus.

Against the drama in which the Romans and Jews clash over the King of the Jews, a young teenage couple worry their romance will be discovered. Their families would never approve of such a match. But love sees many people take risks and on one of their assignations they accidentally witness some extraordinary scenes. Their friends are no help and it seems their love will forever be unrequited. But then their lives are overtaken by something far more dramatic and amazing as the events surrounding the Son of God unfold around them.

It was a privilege to have the play here. It's a powerful testimony to Christian belief. St Gabriel's Catholic Church
The play brought scripture to life and gave the characters flesh. I can thoroughly recommend 'Pilates Error' as a wonderful way to 'break open the word' for any congregation."
