Amid the heat and beauty of ancient Palestine
… a man stands on a dusty road.
An extraordinary journey will take place, retracing the footsteps of Jesus through a world of miracles and madness, violence and liberation. As The Narrow Road is walked, this turbulent world is turned upside down and its inhabitants confronted by an unexpected and surprising vision. As we walk with these people to the cross and on into the challenge of the life beyond it, The Narrow Road asks each of us to review our understanding of our own faith in relation to that journey. The Narrow Road is a communal experience of theatre and worship for the season leading to Easter.
York-based Riding Lights is one of the UK’s most successful independent theatre companies and is internationally renowned for forty years of touring productions. The Narrow Road was first performed in 2010, commissioned jointly by the Dean and Chapter of York and Lightline Pilgrimages.
