New Guesten Hall at Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings in Bromsgrove provides the stunning backdrop to the hit West End play, ‘Jesus My Boy’, which will be performed at the Museum on the evening of Thursday 18th December, 7.30pm. Popular local actor, Jonathan Darby, stars in this one-man play that tells the life of Jesus as seen through the eyes of Joseph, an ordinary man (and lousy carpenter), who is dismayed at how his image is later portrayed to the world. The play lasts for 65 minutes (there is no interval) and is both hilariously funny and deeply poignant. Joseph is the forgotten man of the Christmas story, but here he provides touching and intelligent insights and debunks many of the myths and misconceptions around the festive season. The performance will take place in Avoncroft Museum’s New Guesten Hall, whose 14th century roof was described by Nikolaus Pevsner as “the most elegant piece of medieval carpentry in the county”.
