Crucifixion First, Naptime After

Being from a Catholic school up-bringing I have, of course, acted in at least one "Last Supper - The Crucifixion of Jesus" play. The one I remember the most was the one where I played Judus. A yay for me big bad self if you please.

I was about 8. Being of a time before hyperactivity and ADHD had hit the medical headlines we feasted on red cordial and fairy bread Is everyone familiar with fairy bread, or is this one of those weird Australian customs?. The boy with the longest mullet got to play Jesus. The prettiest girl got to play Mary. There was no mention of Mary Magdelegne. I can even remember my lines. Okay, my line. "Then you know?" I put as much pathos as I could into that line. My parents were so proud.

The worst thing about playing the betrayer of the Son of Man? Jesus made me leave before they broke out the fairy bread. The rat bastard.
