Anthony Gallo is a prolific writer and he is here to invite you to a Play Reading of one of his new works.

“I am Anthony Gallo and the playwright of a new work called Paul which will be performed (with ancient Jewish music) as a staged reading at the Greenbelt Arts Center on Monday, May 14, 2012 at 8 PM.

Anthony E. Gallo.

My play examines the complex and contradictory life of Christianity’s second leading theological architect through his Epistles, from Romans to Titus, and the writings of Josephus. Paul’s impact not only on the now two billion Christians around the world – but tangentially on non-Christians as well –  is not disputed. The play follows him from being a deeply religious Jewish leader, successful businessman, civic leader, and persecutor of fringe cults to becoming an apostle of the Nazarean following his epiphany on the road to Damascus.

The narrative traces his conflicts with members of the new cult, then with his fellow disciples, the Romans, Greeks, Jewish leaders, his own family and friends, and the people he tries to convince. It asks if Paul’s spiritual conversion also resulted in personal character conversion.

We have a superb cast that includes Jan Forbes, Tarpley Long, Mellicent Singham, David Weaver, John Miller, Bruce Smith, James McDaniel, Colin Davis, Shirl Weaver, Bruce Brennan, Jonathan Gadsden, Mark Mueller, Dana Hickox, Sherman McDaniel, Bruce Smith. Zunny Metama, and Mark Mueller. Sound by Beatrix Whitehall.

The Play Reading of Paul is on Monday, May 13, 2012 at The Greenbelt Arts Center -123 Centerway, in Greenbelt, Maryland. Tickets are $5.00. Reserve tickets by calling (301) 441-8770. Tickets: If you have any questions write Tony agallo2368@verizon.net.
