Publisher's Summary

Tonight's title is the Family Portrait. Thirty-odd years ago, a play appeared on Broadway called The Family Portrait. It was a study of Jesus and starred Margaret Webster and Judith Anderson. They played the parts of Mary Magdalene and Mary the Mother. The central figure - Jesus - never appeared on the stage, just as it should be. The brothers appeared, bringing the news of what he had said and the reactions of the crowd and the concern of the two Marys. This went through the entire play, for its two and a half or three hours.
I do not know if it ever came on the road, if you ever saw it, but it was a perfectly wonderful presentation of this greatest of all mysteries, and in keeping with the story, he never appeared, because Jesus Christ is not what the world thinks he is.
