St Michael’s church in St Albans is very excited to be hosting an informal first reading by professional actors and director of The Voices of Morebath. This is a new play by the famous Cambridge historian of the Reformation, Professor Eamon Duffy, based on his book about life in a mid-sixteenth century Devon village. St Michael’s is an ideal setting to reenact Voices: a building with more than a thousand years of history, it still bears the scars of events about which Professor Duffy writes. Yet Voices is also startling contemporary, analysing the social and political impact of passionate and irreconcilable religious ideas.
Voices will be delivered as a rehearsed reading on Saturday 1st October. Tickets include a Q&A with Professor Duffy between 5 and 6pm, the rehearsed reading from 7pm and a glass of wine or fruit juice during the interval of the play reading.
