  2. 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

    Van Gogh's life is narrated through his letters to his brother and through his brother's memories. The excitement and color of Van Gogh's life and art enhance this production through the projection of images that are easily handled and carefully cued to add impact to the words. The total effect is dazzling, yet this remains an especially easy show to present, provided you have a capable actor for the single role.

    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.

    These monologues offer a wonderful variety. A frantic mother is trying to help her son with his complex math homework or explain to him about the facts of life. A cruel old woman is sitting in a rocking chair on a summer resort porch casually dominating other people's lives for her own convenience. A young woman is trying to deal with an idiot beauty salon, and we listen to the train of thought as another woman sits alone at a concert. There's a startling array of quick portraits of American women visiting Paris and many, many more. Learn More
