An Easter Carol
by Les Ellison
In this one-act play, the three students of the Magi, following up on clues that they discover at a house clearance, travel independently to Bethlehem, Galilee and Jerusalem looking for what their tutors sought 33 years ago. They each learn about various aspects of the man Jesus’s life and works, but it is only when they finally meet up at Golgotha and learn of his death that they are able to piece together the whole story.
This modern play lasts about 1 hour. There are 13 characters but, with doubling up, it can be performed by a cast of eight.
