The Narrow Road

Riding Lights Theatre Company is pleased to announce a revival of their acclaimed passion play The Narrow Road by Paul Birch, during the season of Lent 2019.

Amid the heat and beauty of ancient Palestine, a man stands on a dusty road. An extraordinary journey will take place, retracing the footsteps of Jesus through a world of miracles and madness, violence and liberation. As the Narrow Road is walked, this turbulent world is turned upside down and its inhabitants confronted by an unexpected and surprising vision.

As we walk with these people to the cross and on into the challenge of a life beyond it, The Narrow Road asks each of us to review our understanding of our own faith in relation to that journey. There are pauses in the performance which give opportunities for personal reflection and worship.

Audience responses to the 2010 production:

“This was the most inspiring 90 minutes I’ve spent in a long time.”

“A packed hall, an amazing play and a wonderful preparation for Easter Day.”

“This was a truly extra-ordinary and life-changing event. It will have a deep and lasting effect on me.”
