Vancouver, BC: If you are looking for a feel-good evening at the theatre, check out David Adams's gentle version of Joseph, the world's most famous, yet usually overlooked father. How would you react when your newly betrothed virgin bride announces that she is pregnant and that you-know-who is the father? This Joseph takes it all in his stride. He delivers the baby in a cave where they have taken shelter, deals smartly with the three "wise men" who have come to worship the new "king of the Jews", and carts his family off to safety out of reach of the long arm of the current king, Herod. He raises this first born son plus a passel of younger brothers only to see the eighteen year old Jesus leave home for good, and ultimately of course, be crucified. Dowie wisely stops the narrative there so we don't get to hear what Joseph, the pragamatist who does not even acccept the ideas of astrology, would have made of the events that followed.
