The Accountment of Luke

OVERVIEW

 

Author of the Gospel according to Luke and the book of Acts of the Apostles, Luke the Evangelist has often been the subject of debate and yet no singular conclusion about his life seems to be available. This extraordinary new account looks back two thousand years to the last days of Jesus, and offers an alternative view through the eyes of a man whom many consider to be an enigma. Not Luke the outsider, as frequently perceived, but Luke the disciple, a direct witness to the reported events.

PRESS QUOTES

 

"this retelling, written from Luke's perspective, transcended stuffy rhetoric and felt refreshingly tangible. It embraced Theatre as a shared experience – conversational in tone and compelling in delivery... Here is a telling that has stayed with me long after Easter"
~Kirstie Brewer, BRITISH THEATRE JOURNAL

"AN EASTER TREAT... It was a fascinating account of the Last Supper as James put flesh on the bones of the Bible, talking about the disciples as men, explaining the pain of wearing a crown of thorns crushed down on the head and describing the blood and mud in gory detail"
~John Nurden, THE SHEERNESS TIMES GUARDIAN
