Play Makes American Debut in Alton

Story by WBGZ Radio

The one man show is the story of the events leading up to the death of Jesus as seen through the eyes of Satan, and how things don't go as he planned.

John O'Hagan of Bankside Rep is the lone actor on stage and tells the Big Z it's more than just the Easter story; it's also about faith and how we interact with one another:
