Award-winning actor/playwright Roxanne Fay (“Home Fires Burning”, “Dream Child”) returns to the area with a new solo show, a fascinating and imaginative re-telling of the life of Mary Madalene, follower of Jesus of Nazareth. Upon This Rock: The Magdalene Speaks will be presented June 23rd through the 25th in the Bridge Street Theatre Speakeasy, located at 44 West Bridge Street in the Village of Catskill.
Who was Mary Magdalene? Where did she come from? Was she the fallen woman saved from public stoning? The repentant sinner who anointed the messiah? What was her position in the family of disciples? What was her connection to Jesus? And what was her place among the miracles and mysteries of the new faith she helped to found? Based in Ms. Fay’s study of both historical and religious sources, the play travels outside the boundaries of the simple sketch offered in the New Testament and introduces a woman of substance, illuminating the subversive path that she ultimately chose and offering a fresh and intriguing take on the woman who is called “The Apostle of The Apostles.”
