A sacrificial son. Sisters with a shocking secret. A man on Death Row. Testament invites you to bear witness to the dark underbelly of The Good Book. Set in modern day America, Testament explores the compelling re-imagining of four oft-forgotten Bible characters against a haunting score of gospel and blues as we behold how their lives have unfolded in today’s society.
