Special Showing Watch this on-stage, solo performance (2 hours) by Max McLean, reciting key portions of Genesis, based on the NIV translation. It’s an eloquent telling of the first book of the Bible, a theatrical tour de force.
McLean will keep your attention through story after story, which are divided into six sessions. With remarkable energy and a gift for storytelling, McLean captures the humor and pathos in Genesis’s dramatic sweep from: the creation to Eden to Babel; from the story of Lot to the immense flood of Noah to Abraham’s heart-cleaving sacrifice of his son Isaac; from the epic destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah to Jacob’s soul-wounding wrestling match with the Angel of God.
Passionate, fallible men and women spring to life in a story that has inspired children and baffled scholars. You’ve never known Genesis like this.
