Each of the dramas is built on a Series C Gospel for Lent. They are intentionally short and require a minimum of rehearsal. Each has few characters, making recruitment less burdensome. The dramas are parables, meant to highlight themes in the day's Gospel. They are designed to take 5-10 minutes in the service and call for little costuming or set design.
