Volume 6 Number 1
by Kent Annan
Drama has long been part of the PTS curriculum; this year’s production of Job: A Mystery Play was a reaffirmation of why. For two nights the Book of Job, one of Scripture’s most dramatic stories, came to life on the Mackay Auditorium stage—to the benefit of the PTS community and people from the Princeton area.
In the many hours preparing to stage the play, students collaborated, wrestled with theological questions, supported each other, and learned more about the way Scripture, theology, and art can work together—all of which they will take with them when they move from study in seminary to ministry in the church.
Here are the stories of three main participants in Job: Cress Darwin (actor who played Job, M.Div. student, former professional actor and television producer), Sandra Costen Kunz (author of the script, Ph.D. candidate, writer, and educator), and J.B. Redding (actor who played the Accuser, M.Div. student, founder and CEO of a business that cares for severely disabled people). They brought unique perspectives to their respective roles; their stories are testimony to the rich student life on Princeton’s campus.
