Paul (NHB Modern Plays) free pdf An irreverent and provocative drama questioning the basis of Christianity, by the author of "The Romans in Britain." 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. But they prefer to keep Paul in the dark because, although he is mistakenly preaching that Christ rose again, at least it keeps him busy and gets the Christian message out there... Now imprisoned by Nero, Peter finally tells Paul the truth before they go to their deaths as the first Christian Martyrs. 'Powerful and thrilling... The beauty, compassion and sense of mystery in Paul's words sends shivers down the spine'- "Daily Telegraph" 'An exciting play that explores big issues'- "Guardian"
