Self-Conscious Theatre

The Book of Judith, created by Michael Rubenfeld and Sarah Garton Stanley, is a musical play about Matthew Goldberg, a self-anointed preacher, who is driven to change the lives of others without actually understanding the true nature of change. 

After a chance meeting with artist Judith Snow, a woman with quadriplegia, Matthew believes he has “seen the light” and been transformed.  Matthew is now embarking on an unstoppable attempt to show everyone else “the light” and heal the world by sharing his story of meeting and loving Judith Snow.  With the assistance of an
integrated choir, comprised of local singers with and without disability, Matthew attempts to convert the audience (and choir) by preaching his Book of Judith, containing what he believes is the wisdom of Judith Snow.

The Book of Judith is a story about courage, love, ignorance, and the very real possibility of transformation.  This is Matthew Goldberg’s story of Judith Snow.

“This is not the world that I would have designed” – Judith Snow

“It is a socially minded, soul-mending public spectacle of the stand-up-and-shout variety and, at the risk of sounding more of a cheerleader than critic, I encourage you to see this and to lend to its charming crusade your own energy. You never know: miracles happen every day.”
- Eye Weekly (Toronto)
