Ao1 Audition Notice

Son of a Carpenter
by Robert White


Joseph follows his father’s footsteps as a carpenter and tradesman in Nazareth, and hopes one day one of his sons will also follow his footsteps. When his parents decide it’s time for Joseph to marry, they make arrangements with the parents of a local young woman. At first, Joseph is reluctant to consider marriage, wanting to make sure he is following God’s will and not just his parents’ wishes. As he warms to the idea, Mary gives him some unexpected and unbelievable news. How does Joseph reconcile this incredible news with his own beliefs? How does a man of faith learn to believe in the unbelievable? The Son of a Carpenter explores this dilemma by focusing on Joseph’s journey to the answer.
