The Summoning of Everyman
Lance Davis performs his original radio adaptation of the mysteriously joyful, Medieval Morality Play THE SUMMONING OF EVERYMAN! With original score by Tom Peters. (40 minutes)
In the Middle Ages, life for many was spare and fleeting. Cautionary Christian lessons of salvation and stories of the glories of eternal life were taught to the illiterate – but not unintelligent – populace not only in sermons, but also in the comforting symbolism of ritual, stained glass, and Morality and Mystery plays.
The Tale of Noah’s Ark
The inspiring tale of the beleaguered servant, ridiculed for his faithfulness to God, but rewarded for his belief. Lance Davis’ comic, radio telling of NOAH’S ARK (ages 6+) (20 minutes)
