Artes Christi are back again, this time putting on a reading of ‘The Jeweler’s Shop’: the rhapsodic play written by Karol Wojtyla, perhaps better known as St John Paul the Great. The one-night-only performances mark the first ever feast day of ‘Saint’ John Paul, himself a vocal supporter of the arts and their power to transform culture.
We caught up with the play’s director Emma O’Shea, who shares about the role that theatre played in bringing her back to her faith and why the upcoming presentation of The Jeweler’s Shop is particularly special.
