ProjectsJoseph (UK Tour 2006)

The story is based on the Biblical story of Joseph, found in the book of Genesis. It is set in a frame in which a narrator is telling a story to children, encouraging them to dream.
She then tells the story of Joseph, another dreamer ("Prologue," "Any Dream Will Do").

In the beginning of the main story Jacob and his 12 sons are introduced ("Jacob and Sons"). The brothers are jealous of Joseph for his beautiful coat, which is a symbol of their father's preference of him ("Joseph's Coat").
Moreover, Joseph has dreams which makes it very clear that he is destined to rule over them ("Joseph's Dreams").

To get rid of him and make the dreams not come true, they sell him as a slave to some passing Ishmaelites ("Poor, Poor Joseph"), who in turn bring him to Egypt.
