Actor Tom Bair will present an exciting storytelling performance of the entirety of The Gospel of St. Mark on Thursday, November 2 in Child Hall. Jointly sponsored by the Cathedral and the Diocese of Atlanta, the show will start at 5 p.m. and a reception will follow. Admission is free, but please register here.

This compelling and remarkable story is said to have been written down by St. Mark, but is attributed to St. Peter. It tells of Jesus’s conflict with the religious and secular authorities of the time, his important teachings, his somewhat stormy, often humorous relationships with his disciples, his miraculous acts and above all, his unique sense of mission. This is “a riveting journey” to quote a recent article in the Episcopal Journal. Bair’s voice is “crystal-clear and his articulation holds one’s interest throughout.” It is performed in the simple, elegant English prose of the King James Bible. 

Tom Bair has appeared in dramatic roles on some of New York’s most prominent stages and in feature films, including Philip Roth’s Indignation.
