A Chosen Vessel is a one man dramatization of the life of the Apostle Paul. Set in the dungeon in Rome where he is awaiting execution, we find Paul to be a man of brilliant mind, broad background and unquenchable faith. Drawn largely from the Book of Acts and Paul’s epistles, this production stresses the turning points of Paul’s memorable life history and the connection between his Jewish heritage and Messianic message he embraced.
Alan Shore succeeds in the difficult task of incarnating both the spirituality and humanity of the Apostle Paul. Shore’s own bridging of Jewish and Gentile cultures gives an insider’s perspective to his portrayal of the Apostle to the Gentiles.
