A Dramatic Choralogue of the Crucifixion. In the play, The Interrogator questions an array of witnesses who were involved with the death of Jesus Christ, thus laying bare their aspirations, prejudices, and mistakes. The Reader sets up each scene or situation by citing pointed passages from the Scriptures, and prior to his testimony, each Witness is solemnly reminded that "In this Court of Universal Conscience comes now and eternally to a hearing the Case of the Crucifixion." A dramatic work of singular power and eloquence.
