One-man passion play coming to Alton Methodist Church this Holy week

A play re-enacting the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus, performed by just one actor, is coming to Alton Methodist Church.

In the drama numerous characters relive their experience of the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Circuit Superintendent Minister, Revd Keith Underhill says;
"The drama is a powerful exploration of events at the heart of Christianity. "You are taken on an imaginative journey and challenged to look again at Jesus of Nazareth and reflect on what it might all mean."

Tickets are £5 and can be obtained from: Alton Methodist Church

Mark Topping has toured England, Wales and Ireland for the last five years playing John Wesley in An Evening with John Wesley and My Own Familiar Friend. He has appeared as John Wesley on BBC TV's Songs of Praise and Flog It! He has played the missionary Revd James Lynch with Applecart Theatre Company.
