Wednesday 11 April 2012
The Word of God… something to die for?
After almost a century of unrest, the King James Bible was intended to end the violent upheavals of the English reformation. But deep-seated conflicts force a leading translator to confront the betrayal of his youthful religious ideals, for the sake of social peace.
David Edgar’s critically acclaimed play, previews at the Duchess Theatre from 19 April. Directed by RSC Artistic Director Designate Gregory Doran, Written on the Heart is “The RSC at its best” (The Times).
Written on the Heart tells the story of two men who, across an 80-year divide, translate the word of God into English. For one, it means death at the stake. For the other, it could mean an archbishop's mitre.
