HOLY WEEK, 15th - 20th APRIL 2019

33 AD. Jesus enters Jerusalem to fulfil his destiny. Satan ascends from Hell to stop him.
A battle begins - for the soul of humanity.

'One of the most remarkable evenings I've spent in the theatre.' David Suchet

'Magnificent, satirical, darkly comic, thoroughly stimulating production.' The Observer

'Vivid, comic and lyrical twist on familiar events.' The Sunday Telegraph

'A terrific performance, startlingly original ... it crackles with great lines.' The Church Times

'... Within the next hour, our operatives will isolate, engage and capture or kill the notorious leader of the most extreme, dangerous and contagious ideology to emerge in the modern era, whose terror activities represent the gravest threat to our interests across the region and the wider world. I refer, of course, to the radical preacher and populist demagogue Yshua Bar Yessuf, the man known - by way of shorthand to our operatives - as "Jesus" ...'

'A riveting, witty performance with fine attention to detail.' British Theatre Guide

'A serious and seriously fine piece of writing  a startlingly original presentation, a terrific performance, it crackles with great lines.' The Church Times

'A light sandblasting for jaded souls, a gleefully heretical flavour  Timely, beautifully written, entertaining and poignant  Butcher's writing shines.' Huffington Post

'The nuance of Butcher's writing and the intelligence and rigour of its theology make The Devils Passion such a worthwhile and forceful piece of theatre, deeply engaged with a radical conception of spiritual reconciliation  theological expansiveness and fascinating elasticity of thought.' The Stage

Award-winning playwright Justin Butcher, author of the world-famous 'Scaramouche Jones', the hit anti-war satire 'The Madness of George Dubya' and the acclaimed 'Go to Gaza, Drink the Sea', now turns his pen to the greatest story of all. Framed satirically against a contemporary War on Terror backdrop, The Devils Passion offers a radically fresh perspective on the timeless narrative, an audacious hells-eye view of the Passion of Christ from a master storyteller, by turns comic, gripping, poetic, pungent and heart-stirring. Directed by Olivier Award winner Guy Masterson ('Morecambe', 'Twelve Angry Men', 'Animal Farm'), with a haunting and evocative soundscape by Jack C. Arnold ('War and Peace', 'Holy Flying Circus', 'The Woman in Black'). The Devil's Passion was adapted recently as a major new drama for BBC R3, starring David Suchet, broadcast in 2017, hailed in The Observer as 'a magnificent performance in a satirical, darkly comic, thoroughly stimulating production [which] raises many theological and ethical questions' and in The Sunday Telegraph as 'a vivid, comic and lyrical twist on familiar events.'
