Consequences

Synopsis:
Based on the story of Jepthah in the Bible's Book of Judges, Consequences tells how Jeff - a gang leader - risks and loses his daughter's life, when he attempts a deal with God, in order to overthrow the ammon gang in a quarrel over territory. the Bible setting is transferred to any run down urban environment and the characters play themselves as quarreling children and fighting grown-ups in a mix of comedy and Drama which raises questions about growing up, independence, sacrifice and forgiveness.

In the original production some of the male parts were played by females. By doubling up, the ten roles were played by six Actors. Running time 90 minutes.
