  4. 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
