Christopher Fry’s lyrical meditation on life, death, violence and purgatory was originally commissioned as part of the Festival of Britain, and opened at St Thomas’ church in Regent Street, London in May 1951 and broadcast live by the BBC in December of that year.
10 years later, the play was performed at St George’s Cathedral, Perth, (broadcast live by the ABC) in February and then at St John’s Cathedral, Brisbane, in March.
Join us for this special event – a staged reading of a stunning allegorical treatment of humankind’s spiritual relationship with faith and his fellow man. In this 60th Anniversary of its Australian premiere, it will be performed concurrently with a staged reading at St John’s Cathedral in Brisbane – a symbolic reaching of hands across the nation.
