Peace Child – Alpha Omega combines the original orchestral music on which the Peace Child musical was based with a totally new story that explores peace and interfaith understanding between a Christian, a Muslim, an Atheist and a Jew. They meet after a catastrophic nuclear accident has caused the evacuation of their home town. They seek safety in a Cathedral which is deserted. Cut off, with no phone or mobile signal, facing imminent death – possibly by nuclear explosion – they reflect on what may happen after death and the relevance of their faith – or lack of it – in the modern world. Peace Child – Alpha Omega is a wonderful opportunity for a school with an orchestra, choir and some talented actors to come together with a Celebrity Story-teller to stimulate a fascinating discussion – between students, staff and parents – about one of the thorniest challenges of the 21st Century.
