Theatre group to bring modern take on Easter story to Rugby church - and prison
and live on Freeview channel 276
Oddments Theatre Company will be staging its drama called The Road to the Cross at Dunchurch Baptist Church - and at Rye Hill prison.
The Somerset-based group has a long history of taking its Christian theatre productions into churches, schools and prisons.
With Easter fast approaching, it is out on tour with a piece which goes beyond chocolate eggs and presents a dynamic drama in a modern setting.
“Set in the 21st Century, this play challenges the audience to think about the Christian message in a new way. ‘The Road to the Cross’ has an innovative set, with lighting and sound effects, to bring you a visually striking show.”
The full production takes place at Dunchurch Baptist Church, Coventry Road, Dunchurch, at 7.30pm on Friday, March 24. Tickets are £12 in advance via the Oddments website and £14 on the door. It is recommended for those aged 12+.
As part of the visit to the area, the company will also present a shortened version of the play at Rye Hill, one of four prisons it is performing at in March.
On other occasions the company takes a collection of sketches into prisons, including modern re-tellings of Biblical parables and stories about forgiveness and guilt.
