A MOVING COMBINATION OF POWERFUL THEATRE, MEDITATION & CORPORATE WORSHIP
Amid the heat and beauty of ancient Palestine, a man stands on a dusty road. An extraordinary journey will take place; one which will re-trace 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 passion story takes its audience 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 review the understanding and practice of our own faith in relation to that journey today.
At intervals, the performance creates space for other expressions of worship, music and reflection arising directly out of the drama.
The whole presentation becomes a powerful act of remembrance which is both participatory and reflective.
Following the huge success of our previous plays The Passion, Calvary and Redemption Song, a new play for 2010, The Narrow Road, has been commissioned jointly by the Dean and Chapter of York and Lightline Pilgrimages.
York-based Riding Lights is one of the UK's most successful independent theatre companies and is internationally renowned for more than thirty years of touring productions.
