Event Description

A staged reading of the play “The Jeweler’s Shop” by Karol Wojtyla (St. John Paul II) will be presented by the community of Old St. Joseph’s Church on Saturday, July 15 at 7 pm and Sunday, July 16 at 2pm. All performances will be held in Barbelin Hall at 321 Willings Alley, Society Hill in Philadelphia. The play was written by St. John Paul during World War II. According to the Village Voice, “…The Jeweler’s Shop expresses complex theology through the every day speech of common people…about the ups and downs of love and marriage.” Free admission and refreshments. Discussion and talk backs, led by Father Daniel Ruff of St. Joseph’s University, follow both performances. For more information, contact Old St. Joseph’s Church, 215-923-1733.
