“My daddy wasn’t nobody – you think I care you the Son of God?”

A man whose father tried to sacrifice him.

Two sisters with a dark family secret.

A man on death row whose cell mate claims to be the Messiah.

TESTAMENT presents four overlooked Bible characters – a ragtag group of women, children, outcasts and thieves – and resets them in modern day America, giving these unknown voices a chance to finally tell their side of the story. Featuring a haunting live score of gospel and blues, TESTAMENT is a compelling and human exploration of the dark underside of The Greatest Story Ever Told.
