NYD Webteam: November 2017
People are on the street.
Another generation is looking for answers — a rich young career woman, an angry gang leader, religious fanatics, activists, crooked bankers, a surprising refugee and the bloke who bought some seriously expensive jewellery.
Despite their differences and social divisions, 140 characters want to meet one extraordinary person. Jesus has
arrived on their street on the lookout for trouble — looking to do something about it.
Four young evangelists — two women, two men — piece together the startling story of what happened, just now, on that street. It's a wild ride through issues of life, death and miraculous street food.
GOSPEL STREET is a powerful mix of theatre, music, comedy and spoken word — a collaboration between award-winning writers, including hip-hop artist Testament. 'Riding Lights is doing what it does best: bringing everyone together to hear some of the good news with wisdom, laughter, energy and insight.'
