These verse plays were written for rehearsed readings at evening church entertainments. As you will see, the three plays are unrelated. The "temptations" are not those of the "Wicked women," nor are the "denials" theirs; the women are more maginificent than wicked. Rather, each of ten women from the Bible explains in a soliloquy what really happened. Temptations is a duel between Jesus and Satan in the wilderness. Denials is an Easter play, requiring no scenery or costuming.
