Overview

Before the Nicene Creed in 325AD, before Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire, women were preachers and prophetesses for The Way. This is a story about one of them who has a final chance to have her story heard, until it is lost to the annals of History. “Let she who has the ears to hear, listen!” Set in both 2019 and also 219, Sophia tells a new story about an ancient book. An Alley Theatre commission featured in last festival’s Early Draft Preview.
