RIDING LIGHTS THEATRE COMPANY presents The Narrow Road by Paul Birch
Powerful theatre on the journey to Easter.
Riding Lights Theatre Company are pleased to announce a revival of their acclaimed passion play The Narrow Road by Paul Birch, for the season of Lent and Holy Week 2024.For many years, Riding Lights Theatre Company has toured its passion plays to churches, cathedrals and communities across the UK, providing a unique, revitalising experience of the drama of Christ's passion.
...vivid and contemporary, with moments of high drama...
A man stands alone on a dusty road, an extraordinary journey before him; one that will retrace the footsteps of Jesus into a world of miracles and madness, violence and liberation. As The Narrow Road is walked, this turbulent world is turned upside down; its inhabitants confronted by an unexpected and surprising vision.Meeting the characters and re-living the events of the gospels, this draws us back along that original road, through the place of the cross and into the challenge of a life beyond.Compellingly performed, The Narrow Road asks each of us to step out in faith on that journey today.The performance opens up at key moments for other expressions of worship, music and reflection arising directly out of the drama, creating a powerful act of remembrance which is both participatory and reflective.
York-based Riding Lights is one of the UK's most successful independent theatre companies and is internationally renowned for more than forty years of touring productions.
The Narrow Road will be at Wesley Memorial Methodist Church on Monday March 4th at 7.30pm.
