"Gathering At Golgotha" provides a simple yet dramatic way for a group of readers to present the human drama at the heart of Jesus' arrest, trial, and crucifixion by focusing on the emotions of those with whom Jesus was most intimate. Including an original song, the script gives fresh voice to the feelings of Jesus' close companions on that black night. This easy-to-produce piece uses very few props and needs minimal rehearsal time to create a lasting effect.
