Overview

Drama set against the backdrop of the first Good Friday - from a Jewish perspective. The third in my trilogy of plays: 1 At the Praetorium/Pilate Under Pressure - the Roman angle. 2 Veil, the legend of Veronica explored. 3 Conclave. In which the High Priest, Caiaphas, and his Inner Circle meet behind closed doors to plot and plan their defence of the status quo against the threat from Galilee embodied by Jesus of Nazareth - even if that means resorting to bribery, putting a certain spin on given facts/events...

As such, it transcends a particular time and place, could be set just about anywhere in the world - wherever politicians, power-brokers, meet in cabinet, conclave... (I have intentionally maintained "neutral speech patterns" throughout...)

And though it is based on the gospels - with particular emphasis on the Passion narrative of Matthew - it can be seen as a drama about men anywhere, at any time, willing to go to any lengths to protect their status quo...
