This monologue is a narrative of the resurrection from Mary Magdalene’s perspective. She was with Jesus when he died, followed his body to the tomb, and was the first to talk with him after he rose again. The set is outside Jesus tomb, and the stone is still rolled away from the entrance. A stone wall or bench is located outside the entrance where Mary sits to tell part of her story.

Colleen Scheid is a life-long writer and has performed nationally with Friends of the Groom Theater Company since 1984 (www.friendsofthegroom.org). She has also been writing, directing and performing plays for her own church, College Hill Presbyterian Church, since the early 1990s, so she has a good feel for the constraints of working in the local church with limited resources, and her sketch and monolog scripts are written with the local church in mind. In addition to the collection available through Skiturgies, Colleen has drama published by Lillenas Publishing, Standard Publishing and Contemporary Drama Service. Her first novel, Drug Free Actors, is available from Amazon and Kindle.
