I did not know that Ernest Hemingway wrote a play about the crucifixion of Jesus. See today's New York Times, in an article (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/10/theater/10mcgr.html?ref=books) about Hemingway's other play, The Fifth Column, set during the Spanish Civil War:
"Though no one talks about them much, Ernest Hemingway wrote two plays. The first, finished in 1926, was 'Today Is Friday,' a forgettable one-acter set on the evening of the original Good Friday, when three Roman centurions get together at a tavern to discuss memorable crucifix'ons they’ve seen, including the one that afternoon. Not surprisingly, they sound a lot like Hemingway’s Nick Adams. “He looked pretty good to me in there today,' one of them says admiring Jesus’ stoicism."
Forgettable? Maybe so, but I'd love to read it.
