A Living Portrayal of Da Vinci's The Last Supper

Leonardo da Vinci's famous painting of The Last Supper comes to life as 13 actors portray Jesus and the Twelve Apostles. Set just after Jesus spoke the words, “Truly I say unto you, one of you will betray me,” each apostle shares his life story and how Jesus has touched his life. Each apostle ends asking themselves the poignant question, “Lord, is it I?” Directed by Walt Brown.
In 1424, Leonardo da Vinci was commissioned by the duke of Milan to decorate the dining room of the church at Santa Maria delle Grazie. As an appropriate theme for the dining room, the painter chose The Last Supper. His painting was not intended to be a faithful reproduction of how it originally took place in first century Palestine, but as it might have taken place in fifteenth century Italy. The artist chose the most dramatic moment of the Supper, just after Jesus said, "One of you will betray me." Ernest K. Emurian, author of the play, presents in a very moving manner the thoughts which might have possessed the apostles during this moment.

A HISTORIC THEATER IN A HISTORIC SETTING 

Vistors often refer to our small historic Southern town as something out of an old movie or a retro television show. References to the rural town of Andy Griffith's Mayberry, the dramatic landscapes of Gone With the Wind or the idyllic charm of Bedford Falls in It's a Wonderful Life, the City of Washington is a charming postcard town full of gorgeous old houses, tree lined streets and a quaint downtown square. 

Likewise, the Bolton Lunceford Playhouse sits proudly among the historic North Alexander School complex, which dates back to the 1890's. Originally, the Playhouse was the school gymnasium.  While public and private efforts are currently underway to rennovate the school buildings, the Bolton Lunceford Playhouse and the members of the Washington Little Theater Company continue to act as beacons for this educational complex.  

The Playhouse is located within a five block walk from Washington's downtown square. Unique shopping and dining experiences on the square, combined with a live theater production, make for a fun evening out! Occasionally the theater will team up with area businesses to offer special promotions and discounts. Be sure to check out the season calendar for a complete list of theater events.
