Impossible God

The Passion Play

Impossible God is a one-man passion play written by Frank Topping and performed by Mark Topping.

Impossible God recreates the world of those who witnessed the passion. Palestine AD32 is brought to life as numerous characters relive their experience of the events.

Impossible God is a powerful exploration of the historical events at the heart of the Christian faith. This inspiring one-man play challenges us to look again at Jesus of Nazareth and consider the meaning of his life, death and resurrection.

Mark Topping is a professional actor who has toured England, Wales and Ireland for five years performing as John Wesley.

He has appeared as John Wesley on BBC TV’s Songs of Praise and Flog It! In 2008 he was Che Guevara at the King’s Theatre in Gloucester.

The devotional book ‘An Impossible God’ was written and adapted for the stage by author, actor, broadcaster and Methodist minister, Frank Topping.
