A DRAMA set between Good Friday and Easter Day draws audiences into the dramatic events of Christ’s Passion.

In 2017, the Riding Lights Theatre Company filmed a live performance of Crosslight, giving the opportunity to draw audiences into the significance of Easter.

It does this by asking questions perhaps never previously considered.

A screening of this film will take place on Easter Saturday on April 20.

South Wales Argus:

Crosslight focuses on the dramatic events of Christ’s Passion, particularly the experience of the one disciple who failed: Simon ‘the rock.’

As Jesus hangs from the cross, he is surrounded by a jeering crowd, laughing at his claim to be the Son of God.

A small group of family and friends stands by until the agony ends.

But the great friend who, more than any other, has stood by Jesus throughout the story is conspicuous by his absence.

The 70-minute long production was written by Paul Burbridge and Les Ellison, directed by Paul Burbridge and designed by Anna Gooch.

York Press have previously praised it, saying: “A fascinating psychological drama… The show asks questions about what we learn through failure, the importance of forgiveness and the power of redemption… Tremendous.”

South Wales Argus:

Crosslight will be shown, at 4pm on Saturday April 20, at the 120-seater Hub Theatre in the Mitel Building, Castlegate Business Park, Portskewett.
