Presented in a way that makes the Gospel accessible to anyone, this 100-minute performance is a breathtaking journey into one of the world’s most beloved stories. The fast-paced action evokes all the tenderness, intimacy, passion, anger, and mystery of John the Evangelist’s poetic masterpiece.

Three actors, using only two chairs, a table, and a few cloths bring to life the drama and poetry of the Gospel with stunning simplicity and imagination.

“An exceptional piece of stagecraft.  It combines storytelling, minimalist production design and a sort of Greek chorus to tell the story of the Gospel simply and without preaching...

“No matter what your religious belief-or lack of it-The Gospel of John is an extraordinary evening of theater. You'll find yourself thinking about it, even discussing it with others, for days afterwards. What could be more rewarding?”

-Bruce G. Hallenbeck, The Independent

 “One terrific story,  with plot twists and turns that are classic. Riveting.  Dynamic.  A wonder.  Terrific.  The play has resonance and strength… triumphs and mysteries.”                                                                                          

-J. Peter Bergman, Berkshire Bright Focus
