  6. Magdalene

    Magdalene

    By Michael Johnson.

    Product Code: M69000

    • 1w.
    • 45 min.
    Consistent with the inner pilgrimage of Magdalene's soul from courtesan to the sister-bride of Christ, the language used is a rich, simple, biblical poetry. The play has been at once unanimously successful with church audiences in chancel settings and secular audiences in professional theatres, transcending the line that normally divides the two. Magdalene, the character, emerges not as the holy recluse of popular legends, but as a woman discovering her own femininity by being deeply touched and appreciated by a man. Learn More

    Now, through the power of theatre, Austen is alive and well and living in any place where she chooses to "body forth" at the flamboyant age of 218-going-on-forever. Quirky, jubilant, curious, this Jane's ironic comic edge cuts her losses to reveal a fiercely independent woman, liberated by her work's immortality to speak her mind and open her heart. A tour de force part for an actor of any age, this Jane wears whatever current clothes she fancies and "speaks American." This is Jane of infinite variety—not staled by custom or stereotype.
