LOVE. LOYALTY. BROTHERHOOD. BETRAYAL.

Easton Lee's

THE ROPE AND THE CROSS- THE 40th ANNIVERSARY PRODUCTION
Directed by David Heron

From rural Jamaica to ancient Jerusalem, Easton Lee's masterpiece The Rope and The Cross spins an enthralling tale about two of history's most compelling and controversial figures- Jesus Christ and Judas Iscariot. Weaving together past and present, fact and fiction, Lee presents these mythical characters as if they were ordinary Jamaican men- young, rebellious and determined to revolutionalise 'the system.' But they tragically discover that, then as now, the politics of division will always be be employed by those in power, to squash rebellion and prevent change we can believe in.

First performed in Siloah, Jamaica on Easter weekend 1979, The Rope and The Cross lives on in this staged concert reading production, to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of its World Premiere. Yet four decades after its birth , and thousands of years after its events, Easton Lee's tale of Christ's passion is as relevant today as ever - an unforgettable experience that the entire family can share and treasure.
