The full title of this play is technically Dr Luke and the Mysterious Events in Jerusalem. Originally scripted for filming, as we couldn’t get all our 11-14’s in one place and the same time, this would work equally well live. It’s got a tongue-in-cheek attitude to delivering the essential facts of the resurrection through various interviews with people who know what they’re talking about.
Cleopas: When He broke the bread we realised that the mysterious stranger was no stranger at all!
Dr Luke: Who was he?
Jose/Cleo: Jesus of Nazareth!
Josephus: It was like our eyes had been opened, it was Jesus all along but we’d only just realised.
Dr Luke: So what you’re saying is – this Jesus of Nazareth is central to the mysterious events in Jerusalem.
Josephus: Yes, indeed He is. Right, we must be off.
Cleopas: Bye, nice to have met you.
Exit Josephus and Cleopas past camera
Dr Luke: People don’t hang around when the plot doesn’t need them anymore. It seems, Theophilus, we must find out more about this Jesus of Nazareth.
Theo: Perhaps we can even meet Him, Dr Luke!
