A World Premiere
Written by Motti Lerner
Directed by Jimmy McDermott
Pierce Hall at the Historic Chicago Temple Building, 77 W Washington St., Chicago
Set between 58 A.D. and 64 A.D., Paulus imagines the Apostle Paul, who bridged Christianity from a Jewish sect to a global religion. Framed as an intra-Jewish debate, Paul’s quest to universalize monotheism provokes strong opposition from the Jewish Establishment, the Jerusalem Church, the Emperor Nero, and a skeptical 62 year old Jesus.
Silk Road Rising commissioned the translation of Paulus from Hebrew into English.
