THE BIG PICTURE is a stirring, epic theatrical encounter with God’s relationship to humankind as it is told in the tales of the Christian Bible. The compelling, human side of these foundational stories of western culture comes to life as an ensemble cast of five multi-talented performers enacts them with expert versatility – Adam and Eve, Abraham and Isaac, Joseph and his brothers, David and Bathsheba, right through the gospel of Jesus Christ and beyond.
“An epic act of theatrical creation that redefines stage chutzpah for our time” – Edmonton Journal
Directed by Tom Carson, designed and stage managed by Katarzyna Misztal-McCubbing, music by Mike Janzen, featuring Jason Hildebrand, with Andrea Cross, Paul King, Richard Munton and Ryan Sero.
