Play investigates Jesus' resurrection

A new light-hearted one-act play being performed in Augusta looks at the resurrection through the eyes of a local newswoman.

Eight Days After, an original play by Rick Davis and Tina Zimmerman, will be staged at 6:30 p.m. Sunday at Aldersgate United Methodist Church’s Family Life Center and again at 6 p.m. April 28 at The Hill Baptist Church.

The play is set in a dream of News Channel 6’s Jennie Montgomery, who is a member of Aldersgate. She dreams herself into the post-resurrection chaos that followed Easter morning and interviews people surrounding the scene – Mary Magdalene, Peter, John and Thomas.

The play is free, but an offering will be taken in support of the church’s youth program.
