“Who was Mary Magdalene?”
Was she the fallen woman saved from public stoning? The repentant sinner who anointed Jesus’ feet? Where did she come from? What was her position in the family of disciples and what was the connection she had to Jesus?
Upon This Rock is not a sermon. It is a work of fiction, based in religious and historical studies. The play will travel well outside the boundaries of a simple sketch of the woman from the gospels of the New Testament to introduce a woman of great strength, the subversive path that she chose and her place among the miracles and mysteries of the new faith she helped to found. Upon This Rock strives to make flesh the woman who is called “The Apostle of the Apostles”- Mary, The Magdalene.
