General Announcements

Franklin parish to host play based on Gospel of John

Actor Frank Runyeon will perform his one-man play titled The Gospel of John: The Book of Signs at 7 p.m. on Feb. 26 at St. Rose of Lima Parish, 114 Lancelot Drive, in Franklin.

Runyeon starred in the daytime soap operas “As the World Turns” and “General Hospital” as well as in the prime-time shows “Santa Barbara,” “Falcon Crest,” “L.A. Law” and “Melrose Place.” He also acted in the film Sudden Death.

In recent years, Runyeon has pursued a very different career. He has performed plays based on the Gospels for hundreds of thousands of people in almost every state in the U.S.

His newest performance, which is based on the Gospel of John, is set in darkness and candlelight with theatrical lighting. Its text is drawn from the first 11 chapters of John’s Gospel, which is translated into contemporary American speech.

Runyeon tells the story in the present tense with entertaining audience interaction. The play is appropriate for families, including grade-school-age children.

He will greet audience members after the performance. A free-will offering will be collected at the event. For more information, call the parish office at 317-738-3929. †
