Additional Info

The dramatic Easter story translated into a modern setting in a small-town American courtroom. The action occurs between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. A man known as The Gardener is on trial, charged with having moved Christ’s body from the tomb after the crucifixion. The characters involved in the great drama are called to the stand. Each tells, in everyday language, what he saw and the way he reacted. As each contributes evidence for the defense or the prosecution, the familiar story achieves stirring suspense. In an electrifying scene, Mary Magdalene steps down from the stand and reenacts her meeting with Jesus in the garden.
