Doubting Thomas Centre Stage04/06/2012
A total of almost 1,500 people, over two evenings, filled the Lyric Theatre to see a new musical drama about Thomas ‘the Doubter’ presented by a company of singers and actors from local chapels. Nan Lewis wrote the script and lyrics, and Meinir Lloyd composed the music.

Scenes of Jesus' ministry were presented by the cast of over 80 children and adults, aged between four and eighty years old, in a highly-polished and moving performance. Tomos Didymus was most entertaining, educational and inspiring.
"Thomas’ cynicism reflects our condition today," said Nan Lewis. "Unbelief is rampant. But, at the end of the story, Thomas is the one who goes furthest as a missionary. "(According to tradition, to India.) "It shows that the sceptic who comes to believe is often the best missionary."
