Play With A Moral

"The Boy Who Wouldn't Play Jesus", this year's production by pupils of Nayland College, packed a very hefty moral-issue punch. The play was really a play within a play. The main problem arises when the boy who is to play the part of Jesus refuses to perform since he believes the play false. The moral issue of the starving millions is brought to the forefront very early in the piece, and this thereafter constitutes the main theme. The climax was a descent upon the audience by the cast for a collection for the starving (on the second night this raised $8). A very good show.
