About The Cross Behind the Curtain
What would you do if the government told you it's against the law to drive a car without hubcaps and fined you if you accidentally hurt a pigeon? What would you do if your children were taught in school that they should support all the deeds of the political party in power? What would you do if it was against the law to teach your children about God? What would you do if your employer fired you for no reason--except that you are a Christian? What would you do if you knew you could be sent to labor camp just for having a Bible in your car? What would you do if you knew the authorities might break into your house and arrest you if you gathered with other believers? Would your faith stand the test? Theirs did.
"The Cross Behind the Curtain" is a story of life in the Soviet Union in 1964, focusing on the experiences of Christians living under Communism. Presented with drama, humor, Russian folk songs, and original music and choreography, this musical production is suitable for the entire family.
The Old Testament "was written in the past . . . to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope" (Romans 15:4 NIV). In the same way, we can gain courage and hope as we learn of the endurance of our brothers and sisters around the world who have taken up their cross and followed Jesus, no matter the cost.
This play was performed by the Homeschool Dramatic Society on September 17 and 18, 2009, at the Cookeville Performing Arts Center in Cookeville, Tennessee.
