Tried, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment, John finds himself breaking rocks alongside killers and thieves - but John has a secret, John has a story and John’s story will change everything.
Darkness Falls is the remarkable re-imagining of the gospel of John, by the acclaimed Saltmine Theatre Company. Moving, funny, poetic and fantastical, the play mixes vivid storytelling with beautiful live music to bring you a timeless story as you’ve never seen it before.
Written and produced by the acclaimed Saltmine Theatre Company Darkness Falls is a partnership with UCCF: The Christian Unions, who have produced follow up resources - a Gospel of John to give away post - performance, and a seeker bible study for further follow up.
This show is written for university mission and contains aggressive behaviour and mild bad language it is suitable for an audience 12+
"We found the production amazing... the script was so uplifting and varied- entertaining, challenging, moving - and it was great to sense the full reality of John's Gospel through it"
(Vicar, All Saints Church Madeley, at Keele Chapel performance)
UCCF's reflection on Darkness Falls:
"This production forms part of UCCF's 'Uncover John' resources, designed as a springboard to discovering Jesus. Having seen the show, reading Uncover John's Gospel with the enclosed Seeker Bible Study is a natural progression: many non-believing students are now doing just that"
