ANDERSON — Chelsea Jackman, who received a Bachelor of Arts degree in theater studies from Ball State University this month, has written a new play about finding and keeping faith. What happened to bring a pagan Roman centurion steeped in idolatry to look at a Jewish carpenter on a cross and say, “Truly! This Man was the Son of God!”?
“Truly” is the creative attempt to answer that question by showing the struggle to find faith — and to keep it in a world bent on destroying it.
