Programme Notes

Judas's Tale is the latest in a series of one act pieces examining some of the events and personal feelings which surrounded the Good Friday story.

Attempt is made in all of them to try and reveal what effect these events might have had on the lives of ordinary people at the time, and how some of those more closely involved might have felt inclined to act.

Whist attempt is made to stick as closely as possible to the well known story, much is in the mind and imagination of the writer and, hopefully through the passge of the play, in the thoughts of the audience member also.
