Teatime at Golgotha
Teatime at Golgotha is “a heady, wittily self-effacing drama” about the unenviable search for meaning in what is–in all likelihood–a cold, cold world. Following the stories of Longinus after the crucifixion, the last hours in the life of astronomer Tycho Brahe and a modern day hostage situation, Teatime leaps back and forth through the millennia drawing meanings, parallels and conclusions that the characters themselves characteristically fail to notice.

“Intelligent, thrilling... rewarding, bringing history, myth, and hallucination into fruitful collision… a heady, wittily self-effacing hour-long fantasy that charms even as it ridicules its own grandiosity… cool humor and fantastical musings... Chrisler's lost souls are pitiful buffoons... children of Chekhov.” Justin Hayford, Chicago Reader
