Exodus 20 by Jennifer Johnston

"Honour thy Father" Lad!..

In the last of our Old Testament New Tales series of plays with a scriptural source this week features Exodus 20 by Jennifer Johnston. A boy comes home from school to find his father. But what exactly has he found? And what has he lost? Exodus 20 lists the Ten Commandments - coveting this and that, in the best known order; but an even earlier version of the Decalogue in the Hebrew Bible may be closer the mark in its total prohibition against boiling a kid in its own mother’s milk ...

With Keith Hanna as Phelim and Jim Bartley as his father.
