First performed in an ecumenical Lenten program on “Faith and Food,” this play could be done as a sermon when the Gospel is the Feeding of the 5,000, or as part of a communion or confirmation class, stewardship presentation, or … whenever! It can simply be performed in the chancel area or any setting as a stand-alone presentation or a sermon play as an explanation of what might have happened when Jesus fed 5,000 with five loaves and two fish.
Additional individuals in non-speaking roles can be added to the cast for the crowd or other disciples.
