This time SHADES performed a one-act play from its tour for 2012.
A Rose in the Courtyard
by Craig Sodaro
Directed by Rob Cooke, this is a most powerful One-act Play about the persecution of the early Christians.
On the eve of his appointment as governor of the Roman district Tysus, Prefect Flavius faces a tragic dilemma. His daughter, Gena, professes she is a Christian during one of the great persecutions. Flavius’ wife, driven by ambition, wants nothing to block his appointment – even if that means her husband must sentence her step-daughter to death. Flavius is torn between his desire to uphold the law, his love for his daughter, and an inner light that seems to be guiding him contrary to all that he believes.
