Abstract

Day two of Chester 2010 was about Jesus’s presence. However, his presence on day three was problematic. Chester 2010’s ‘The Ascension’ (directed by dance and drama professor Artemis Preeshl, with additional coaching by English professor John Sebastian, both of Loyola University New Orleans) captured the constantly shifting moods of despair, anxiety, hope, and confidence that are represented in the play.
