About this event

Sapientia, AD 970 by Roswitha

Sapientia and her three young daughters are newly arrived in Rome to spread the word about the one and only true god. But words are weapons. The emperor Hadrian decrees they must be stopped. After cajoling and entreating fail, the most brutal tortures and humiliations ever devised are brought to bear on the children; the youngest of whom is only eight years old. Can the martyr’s palm prevail against the might of Rome? Where does true power lie – with the armies of an empire or in the strength of belief in the hearts of young children?

There are two versions of the play in the form of an audio drama.The R-rated version fully explores the torture and brutality of the work. The PG version will feature a gentler version of the work with the violence implied.

Once you purchase a ticket, the organizer will be in touch to provide the link for a one hour time slot (note the play runs just over 30 minutes) anytime between May 1st and 31st.
