Jesus Jerusalem Business

Posted 9th February, 2022

This re-telling of the age old story is taken from the point of view of the business owners who had shops, hotels, campsites etc in Jerusalem and who loved the Jewish Festival of the Passover as it brought thousands of pilgrims to the city who subsequently used their services. Indeed the first song 'Business is Booming' tells of how busy they were but how happy they were 'counting shiny shekels galore' at the end of each day. The story of the first Passover is also explored in the second song 'Moses Set us Free' performed by children who were playing in the busy street. The usual themes of jealousy, greed, despair, loyalty and love are explored throughout the play.
