Additional Info

A collection of playlets dealing with the signs of Jesus, each with roles to showcase your most talented players. In one episode, a woman healed of bleeding is forced to testify before a critical scribe. In the Incident of the Samaritan Leper, the comically incorrigible Cleophas makes his living by telling how Jesus cleansed him -- a truly bravura part for a character actor. In a particularly moving piece, the lad whose loaves and fishes fed the multitudes plays a game with his lame sister while a wise and witty neighbor asks sly questions. Another episode tells how the news of the miracle of the changing of water into wine evokes an unexpected reaction from a widow. The playlets require few simple props, can be rehearsed independently, and can be performed in combinations chosen by the director.

Who knew that a biblical play could provoke so many smiles and out loud laughter.

Mueller, then serving a small methodist church in Oakland, CA, Mueller liked the suggestion; Instead of seven dusty sermons on the last words of Jesus from the cross, what about seven playlets. Each reflection one of the sayings of Jesus. Mueller began to write, ...
