This powerful musical is a retelling of the last seven days of the life of Jesus of Nazareth, beginning with the entry into Jerusalem and ending with the Crucifixion. It suggests political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus.

Who did Jesus believe he was? Was Judas not satisfied with Jesus’s apparent lack of political planning and claims of divinity? Is that why Judas felt he needed to betray Jesus?

The vackees

This musical for all the family is about the invasion of a Somerset village by child evacuees from London – the Vackees – at the start of the Second World War. When the local youngsters don’t take kindly to the “invaders”, a different type of war seems imminent.
