Though it is perfect for the Easter season, this series of monologues about the lives of the disciples following Christ's death, resurrection, and ascension, may be used any time throughout the year. Congregations will learn the often overlooked post-Easter story of each of the disciples as they never have before.
The staging of "Disciples Redeemed" can be one with a table set up like the last supper table with the disciples, except for Judas, seated around the table. The story begins with Saul giving his monologue at floor level with the audience and ends with Paul at the table with the rest of the Disciples. The monologue of Judas is optional.
Suggestions for staging and optional costumes are included.
