In 1941, Dorothy L. Sayers wrote a series of twelve radio plays depicting the life of Christ for broadcast on the BBC. No recordings survive, but the scripts remain, published as the book The Man Born to Be King.
To read aloud a selection of these plays, we will meet at 1 p.m. on Sundays from April 28 - June 9 (skipping Mother’s Day, May 12). Bring a lunch; coffee and tea will be provided.
Audio Sample below from Jesus' first visit to Mary and Martha before Lazarus' miraculous resurrection. Martha fusses, Mary remains a bit self-absorbed, and Lazarus doubts his relationship to Life.
