The story of Good Friday and Easter Day is dramatized through the device of "man-on-the-street" interviews. As a radio reporter tries to obtain details of the crucifixion, we hear the viewpoints of many people who witnessed the events, from children to a Roman soldier to a rabbi to some of the disciples. Then we hear radio announcers "on the scene" reporting the astounding good news of the resurrection. With parts for 6 men, 2 women, and 3 children, " Were You There?" is an excellent way to bring the Passion story to life while involving many members of your congregation.
