Testament

By Tristan Bernays

EPUB £3.99£3.19

The dark underside of the Greatest Story Ever Told.

A man whose father tried to sacrifice him. Two sisters with a dark family secret. A man on death row whose cell mate claims to be the Messiah.

In Testament, Tristan Bernays presents four overlooked Bible characters – a ragtag group of women, children, outcasts and thieves – and relocates them in modern-day America, giving these lesser-known voices a chance to tell their side of the story.

Testament was first performed at the 2017 VAULT Festival, London.

Testament is also available in the collection Plays from VAULT 2.
