TESTAMENT

TESTAMENT
Written by Tristan Bernays

Directed by Lucy Jane Atkinson

Produced by Darius Thompson

Set/Costume Designed by Verity Johnson

Sound Designed by Mark Sutcliffe (Associate Designer: Graeme Pugh)

When: 22 February - 26 February 2017

Where: VAULT Festival, The Vaults Theatre, London SE1 7AD

About: A man whose father tried to sacrifice him. Two sisters with a dark family secret. A man on death row whose cell mate claims to be the Messiah.

 

TESTAMENT presents four overlooked biblical characters (a ragtag group of women, children, outcasts and thieves) and resets them into modern day America, giving these unknown voices a chance to finally tell their side of the story.

Featuring a haunting live score of gospel and blues, TESTAMENT is a compelling and human exploration of the dark underside of The Greatest Story Ever Told.
