For Such a Time As This: An Esther Story
Sunday, May 26, 10:30 am
Faith Mennonite Church in partnership with The Bank Theatre and community volunteers is pleased to present For Such a Time As This: An Esther Story. A children’s musical written by Barry Bergen.
Writer and composer Barry Bergen said, “The biblical story of Esther touches on two themes which are front and centre in our world today. Esther is obviously a woman in what was then a decidedly man’s world. She is also a member of a minority. She moves from a very precarious position in life, to one that seems quite powerful– a queen. Yet as queen she realizes that she is still quite powerless– both as a woman and as a member of a minority. Esther’s faith and her ability to play the political games of the day save her and her people. Trying to bring this to life in a children’s play was a challenge and also a lot of fun.”
