JCTC Play Reading: The Gospel According to SB
JCTC Play Reading: The Gospel According to SB
In the best spirit of the improvisations and extrapolations of the Medieval "Mystery Play," The Gospel According to SB provides us with a rollicking but reverent take on Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. If you've ever wondered how Jesus managed to keep control of a raucous Last Supper, or how Mary felt about having "two husbands," you may get your answer here.
