‘The Vigil’, a play for today, has a theme as old as man himself: Is there life beyond death? Are we redeemed by God’s love or is this just a vain hope fostered by the erroneous belief that Jesus rose from the dead?
The play probes deeply into the facts concerning the Resurrection. Did Christ rise from the dead on the third day, the first Sunday of Man, or was it just the plot of clumsy Galilean fishermen?
As always it must be left to the individual as he searches into his soul to find the answer. The actors bring the evidence before you in the somewhat unusual setting of a modern courtroom.
