Who was Mary Magdalene? Was she the fallen woman saved from public stoning? The repentant sinner who anointed Jesus’ feet? Where did she come from? What was her position in the family of disciples and what was the connection she had to Jesus?
“Upon This Rock” is a work of fiction but is based in as accurate an historical context as possible. The play will travel well outside the boundaries of a simple sketch of the woman from the gospels of the New Testament to introduce a woman of great strength, the subversive path that she chose and her place among the miracles and mysteries of the new faith she helped to found. Written and performed by accomplished actor, Roxanne Fay, “Upon This Rock” strives to make flesh the woman who is called “The Apostle of the Apostles” – Mary Magdalene.
