Good Stuff in TEC: Oklahoma

Actor set for Gospel of Mark performance

A bit of the Bible will get a theatrical treatment when actor Wayne S. Turney performs "The Gospel According to St. Mark" 2 p.m. Sunday at St. Patrick's Episcopal Church in Broken Arrow.
Tickets for the performances are $5 adults, $2 students, and are available at the door. The church is at 4250 W. Houston Ave., on 81st Street between Garnett Road and 129th East Avenue.

Turney will present the King James version of the Gospel of Mark in its entirety in a way that combines storytelling and drama. It's a presentation Turney has done for more than a dozen years, performing in both churches and theaters.

The idea of translating what is believed to be the earliest — and what is certainly the shortest — of the Synoptic Gospels into a piece of theater started with the English actor Sir Alec McCowen, who performed "St. Mark's Gospel" for more than two decades, earning a Tony nomination in the process.
