Description

BEN HUR by Patrick Barlow is based on one of the timeless stories of one of the best-selling books of the nineteenth century. This stage adaptation condenses the epic tale so that it is told by just four actors playing the cast of thousands. You are invited to follow an amateur theatre troupe as they produce the massive tale of the fictional Jewish prince and merchant Judah Ben-Hur. He falls to galley slave and rises to champion charioteer within Jerusalem during the life of Jesus Christ, while the actors struggle along through the piece as rivalries form and offstage romances interfere. Complete with chariot race, sea battle, and stage combat, Patrick Barlow weaves his compressed style popularized by The 39 Steps into one of the largest stories ever told. Great fun!
