One night in the 8th century, an Anglo-Saxon monk had an amazing vision. He imagined the cross on which Christ was crucified was talking to him. The incredible poem he wrote describing this vision — The Dream of the Rood — is here interpreted theatrically, using medieval music and a new translation of the poem by director Jeff Dailey. It imagines a group of monks singing and reciting the poem while acting out its deepest meanings. Dealing with the eternal issue of good versus evil, this medieval masterpiece is brought to life in time for Easter.
