Join Marin Theatre Company for a FREE public reading of new play in development by the award-winning writer of Equivocation and 9 Circles

Jesus, Mary Magdalene and Colin Farrell walk into a tomb...

Colin, a famous Irish actor, has the chance to land the role of a lifetime, a role that has ruined the careers of many actors, but one that could be his best shot at an Oscar. The part is a 33-year-old carpenter, an ordinary man who achieved something extraordinary over 2000 years ago - he rose from the dead. As Colin seeks the secret of this incredible event, he finds himself in conversation with the man himself, and the woman who made the resurrection a reality.

MTC’s New Play Reading Series offers exciting script-in-hand readings of new plays by emerging playwrights. Readings are followed by a talk-back with the playwright, director and actors.
