Caesar Price Our Lord
Original afternoon play for BBC Radio 4.
Illusionist Caesar Price has reproduced most of the miracles of Jesus and built a cult following, but what will happen when he decides to stage the crucifixion?
In a near-future London, society is in distress. In the midst of climate chaos, people are seeking solace in the promises of new strains of religion. Illusionist Caesar Price has already walked on water; resurrected people from the dead and fed thousands from one tin of sardines. When he announces that his next 'miracle' will be the crucifixion and eventual resurrection a media frenzy erupts. Is Caesar Price merely an illusionist or is there something more?
