We shall be performing a brand new production of the Poole Passion in 2022.
A wonderful new story written by Ann Balaam entitled “Footsteps”
The play follows a group of tourists visiting modern day Jerusalem. However, when they reach various sites they find themselves transported back in time to that of the events that took place involving Jesus and his followers. Through witnessing these events close up, the tourists then find connections and inspiration to the many challenges facing them in their modern lives.
This new production features a brand new cast (with one or two familiar faces), plus exciting new lighting effects and projections by Conical Sphere, and a new musical score composed by Richard McLester.
Actor Tim Drage created an idea to promote the play, 4 actors would write a monologue, separate from the ‘Footsteps’ script, as if the character they portray was speaking many years later about these events.
These monologues were filmed with each actor performing their own piece.
This is the Mother Mary monologue, written and performed by Ann Balaam.
The Judas Iscariot monologue, written and performed by Tim Drage
The Pontius Pilate monologue, written by Ann Balaam and Clive Balaam, performed by Clive Balaam.
The Jesus monologue, written and performed by Paul Stillwell.
