About Jonah: a miracle play

Jonah: a miracle play is a play in verse, written in the tradition of the miracle or mystery plays of late 14th-century England. The many miracle plays were always on Biblical themes and served the same purpose as the public or ceremonial reading of the Bible stories did among the ancient Hebrews: to inform and to bring to life the ancient words. Jonah: a miracle play is presented in this spirit. It is suitable for table reading or presentation in sanctuary or onstage.
