Roots Among the Rocks, is a brand new play about life, faith, religion and our relationship with the church. It is written, directed and performed by a talented group of young Anglicans and Lutherans from across Canada and it's coming to Vancouver this summer and more specifically to Christ Church Cathedral, Friday July 23rd, at 7:30pm.
Based on interviews with Christians from across the country, Roots Among the Rocks spent May writing a show which combines drama, music, dance and poetry. It premiered this year at General Synod and received an incredible response from delegates of all ages. The show is now touring Canada!
General Synod Delegates from the Diocese of New Westminster saw the show at GS in Halifax and LOVED IT.
Warning: Roots Among the Rocks is a show written for the whole church. In it, the cast confronts issues of identity, community, trust, and forgiveness.
It does not contain: violence, swearing, nudity, smoke effects, reality TV hosts, strobe lighting, an obligatory kiss scene, or robots.
It does contain: confession, dance, poetry, drug addiction, humour, cancer, biblical stories, St. Augustine, an irreverent tribute to Sunday morning worship, human sexuality, rocks, prayers, hopes, dreams and rap.
We think anyone age 12 and over will enjoy it.
Bring your whole youth group, family and church with you! If you're elsewhere in BC during July, you can also catch Roots Among the Rocks at the Sorrento Centre, in Kamloops and on Vancouver Island. For the full schedule, visit the Roots blog!
