Thu 3 November 2016, 18:00 – 20:00 GMT
Have you ever wondered why Abraham accepted God’s command to sacrifice his son? Have you ever stopped to think what the experience would have been like for Isaac? What would Sarah have made of it all? Why would God make such a command?
Presented as a rehearsed reading of the play, dating from the 15th Century, this is a unique opportunity to experience this work - performed in modern English - that imagines with verve the experiences of the human participants as they undergo God’s ordeal.
