most widely produced of the plays by Pope John Paul II, The
Jeweler's Shop made its Off-Broadway debut in 1994. This
poetic drama explores the aspects of human existence
expressed through love and marriage. Three couples learn
along the journey of life that we are all looking for the
same thing – Love. Will they find it? One couple is torn
apart by death of the husband, but their love lives on in
their child. Another couple is tempted by infidelities. A
third couple, about to unite, is made up of the children of
the first two marriages. Will their union stand a chance?
What does it mean to love? Newsday called this drama about
love and family, "Marvelous. A message for our times."
Gannett Newspapers described it as "surprisingly secular"
and a "compelling evening of entertainment that touches the
audience in unexpected ways."
