Alex Doriot, portraying Thomas, speaks with Laura Howard's Mary Magdalene, with Al Britton (left) and Eric Fisher (background center) during a dress rehearsal for "Eight Days After." Britton will play both Lucilius and Andrew, while Fisher is John.

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.
