Free Tickets to Artes Christi's performance of The Jeweler's Shop

Published: Monday 20th October 2014

Before he was a pope, before he was even a priest, John Paul II (Karol Wojytla) was a playwright and actor in Poland's Rhapsodic Theatre, a secret underground theatre group strictly prohibited by the Nazis. With original performances under candlelight with no sets, props or even an audience, the Rhapsodic plays instead relied entirely on the truth and drama of "the word".

The Jeweler's Shop is the most famous of the plays that St John Paul II wrote and is a deeply moving insight into his extraordinary understanding of love, relationships and marriage.

The Jeweler's Shop will be showing at 7.30pm, 24 October at The Kaleide Theatre, 360 Swanston St, Melbourne (RMIT University); and at 7.30pm, 25 October at The Seymour Centre, Cnr City and Cleveland Streets, Chippendale (Sydney).
