Synopses & Reviews
Playwrights Shackleford and Montgomery tell Christ's story from the point of view of Simon, a young, confused fisherman. Opening on a playground in some undesignated time and place, children discover windswept pieces of paper telling a story that will affect their lives forever. Because Simon Peter, James and John, Jesus' inner circle, are the central characters, A Rock and a Hard Place concentrates upon human foibles as they relate to the ministry of Jesus. Revealed through the story is Jesus' love for all three men - not for who they had been, but for who they were going to be. Detailed staging instructions are included in the book.
Christ's story in a contemporary setting from the point of view of Simon, a young, confused fisherman. A timeless and powerful script.
