THIS CHRISTMAS, be reminded of the real reason for the season! The spectacular theatre production by Final Call Productions is back after a 2-year break at The Broadway Theatre in Catford, South London, on Saturday December 14 2019 for the unique stage play And There Was War
Powerfully acted depicting good vs evil, be empowered by this gripping story of the angels, the fall of Lucifer and the plan of Salvation like you’ve never seen before! With a brand-new cast, costumes and awesome dance pieces by the talented choreographer Dannielle ‘Rhimes’ Lecointe, the contemporary theatre production And There Was War, is shaping up to be the most impressive performance yet.
And There Was War, now in its 8th year, written & directed by multi-award winning filmmaker, playwright and poet Jermaine Wong, is a play based on the Bible verse Revelation 12:7 which talks about the war that took place in heaven between God and Lucifer.
It presents how sin entered the world through the selfish ambition and pride of the disgruntled angel Lucifer, played by actor Toheeb Ibrahim, and tells the story of the angels and their struggle of confusion and divided loyalty.
The viewer gets to witness the results of the rebellion and the decision which led to a third of the angels being kicked out of heaven by Immanuel, played by actor John Ojeyemi and highlights the effects sin has had on mankind throughout time and shows the creators plan of redemption to deal with sin once and for all.
Final Call Productions (FCP) is a BME-led theatre company that is run by husband and wife team Jermaine and Danielle Wong. Through drama, theatre, film and poetry, FCP seeks to inspire, inform, engage and encourage its audiences.
“As a believer, I often get challenged with questions about God’s love, fairness and justice. ‘If God is all about love, why is there so much evil in the world?’ ‘Why does God allow evil to continue to exist?’ ‘Is it just and fair to pardon and forgive wrong-doers?’ ‘why do the innocent suffer?’ These are a sample of the many questions we’ve all heard from earnest people who really want to understand how and why a loving God allows sin to devastate and ruin lives,” said Jermaine.
“And There Was War is a faithful and sincere response to these questions. It presents a balanced argument with both sides of the story and gives a deep and meaningful understanding to the solution and plan that God has to save and redeem mankind and once you’ve heard both sides, it presents the choice every single person has to make. Whose side will you choose?
“And There Was War is an inspiring, insightful, relevant and thought-provoking play which will leave audiences with a deeper and meaningful understanding of God’s love for us,” Jermaine added. “Audiences will be celebrating how we overcome, will be left with answers and most importantly hope.”
Exploring famous biblical narratives such as Adam & Eve, Cain & Abel, Mary & Joseph and Noah’s Ark, And There Was War demonstrates the parallels and difficulties of the present-day problems many face in our communities getting us to consider our choices and outside influences on those decisions.
And There Was War creatively interweaves these well-known stories with the story of the angels, the fall of Lucifer and the plan of salvation and through slick and witty dialogue, emotional movement pieces, stylised dance, captivating music and brilliant acting, And There Was War demonstrates a simple truth. That God has a plan.
Selena Jordan from Premier Gospel Radio commented: “I have been totally touched by this performance. It makes you realise the power of love… EXTRAORDINARY! I can’t wait to see this play again!
