A stage version of the award-winning series of radio plays broadcast on BBC Radio 4, 'Witness' chronicles the story of Jesus as told by St Luke. The first half deals with the ministry in Galilee and the journey to Jerusalem. The second half concentrates on Holy Week. A full-length play with a modern setting, it has a large cast, but many of these roles can be doubled and some can be played as either male or female.
It is perfectly possible to present individual scenes or play the two halves of the play separately; the second half for example is particularly suitable to be performed at Easter.
