Ashley Strand brings to life the gorgeous language and many of the characters of the King James Bible in this solo performance of the unabridged text of the Gospel According to Mark.
A masterpiece of English literature, the KJV was nevertheless written to be spoken aloud, for a largely illiterate audience, in a style as vivid as its stories, proverbs, and prophecies.
Mark was first performed as a solo play by Alec McCowen of the RSC, earning a him Tony nomination in 1979. Alchemical Theatre of Wilmington frees the piece from its traditional trappings by presenting it in the round, giving it the immediacy that has become Alchemical’s signature.
Wilmington audiences know Ashley Strand from Mamma Mia! and Shakespeare in Love at OTC, Twelfth Night, Much Ado About Nothing, and Measure for Measure at Alchemical, and Cannibal! The Musical at PSL.
