Paul $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST
The most famous conversion in history — when Saul became Paul on the road to Damascus — was a trick. It was actually Jesus appearing to him. Jesus did not die on the cross but was rescued and sheltered by his brother James, by Peter and by Peter’s wife, Mary Magdalene. Howard Brenton once said that theatre should be like ‘throwing a petrol bomb into the auditorium’. His new play, Paul looks set to restore his reputation as a controversialist. That said, Paul is a bold and deeply serious piece of work that succeeds in re-animating stories and events that have become stale with familiarity.
