A dramatic interpretation of the Five Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary, the play explores the themes of pain, loss, anger, remorse and guilt as exemplified by some of the main protagonists in the Passion story. Mary, Judas, Pilate, Barabbas and Simon of Cyrene each struggle to come to terms with their role and involvement in the recent events. The scenes are followed by a meditative link.
Lasting about 45 minutes, the setting is modern and easy to stage with a cast of 10, 5 men
and 4 women and a young girl/ boy. There are also 2 Readers.
