Mary of Magdala
Anita's Personal Testimony *
~ Late, late for a very important date, that's Eve.
It's her first therapy session and boy, does she need it! She's taken
the rap all these years for introducing sin into the world and she's
looking for answers.
~ Shallow, spoiled, a vixen, an alley cat, that's Potiphar's Wife, and she's proud of it. You'll love to hate her!
~ A woman plagued by demon possession is touched by the only man who can completely cure her - Jesus. Mary of Magdala becomes one of Jesus' disciples and we hear the Passion Week story through her eyes .
Fruit of the Tree is often used during Lent and as the closing program for a women's retreat. It starts out light and funny but ends with Mary's emotional rendition of the crucifixion and resurrection. This program is appropriate for men and women, but due to sexual innuendo in Potiphar's Wife, probably not suitable for young children.
* Anita always includes her personal testimony for single performances. At retreats, she will give her testimony at the end of one of the selected programs. A second piece, "Lessons Along the Way" (10 minutes) is available for repeat clients and retreats. In addition, 10-15 minute "Reflections on the Women" are available for most programs performed in a retreat setting.
