The Pilgrim’s Progress
April 20, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 3:15 pm
The King’s Academy High School presents “The Pilgrim’s Progress” on Saturday, April 20 at WCR Center for the Arts in Reading. Dessert Reception to be hosted between 2:15 & 3:30.
John Bunyan’s 17th century classic Christian allegory is the story of a dream in which the hero, a man named Pilgrim, escapes the City of Destruction and starts a search for the City of God. Convinced his present life is doomed for catastrophe, he flees his home in search of the everlasting world, which is to come. Pilgrim’s travels to the Celestial City take him through such iconic destinations as the Slough of Despond, the Castle of Giant Despair and Vanity Fair. He falls often, stumbles through on grace, struggles through mental and physical tests, goes on alone, and learns how to go forward with a true friend, always showing us how terrifying and exhilarating is the experience of becoming human.
