STORYLINE OF THE PLAY
“I Will Follow You” surrounds the life of a modern-day Jonah character named John Dyer. Through some terrible circumstances, both his wife and son are killed because of the actions of mafia group and its boss, Leon Williams. When God tells John to witness to Leon Williams and his organization, it shows traces of when God asked Jonah to witness to the Ninevites.
John runs from God until he finds himself shipwrecked on an island where he meets a special character, Ellie. She helps John come to terms with God’s calling to follow wherever He leads, primarily by telling him a version of the story based on the three Hebrew children and the fiery furnace, which is powerfully acted out in Act 1.
The overall story tells us all that wherever God should lead us, He is right there with us, even in the hardest times of our lives.
