Synopsis


In the beginning God created the heavens and earth and … Max!


Max is in a car crash with his brother and his girlfriend Tess, who dies in the accident.


Following the loss of his girlfriend, he tries to commit suicide and fails, but when he wakes up, he believes she is still alive, leaving him left questioning what happened to Tess.


Answers appear as apparitions of modernised biblical characters, aiding Max in his discovery or tempting him away.


His only hope of recovery lies in the hands of his brother Chris.


Testament is an award-winning play exploring how humans deal with grief and how it effects those around them, exploring suicide, loss and guilt.


Inviting you into the mind of a car crash survivor as he tries to piece together his fractured memories - exploring the fragmented and nonlinear process of our memories and how trauma can affect this.
