Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two men, eighty years apart, translate God's word into the English tongue. For one, it could mean death at the stake; for the other, an archbishop's mitre. David Edgar's historical drama, seen at the Royal Shakespeare Company and on the West End, marks the King James Bible's four hundredth anniversary and explores biblical translation, religious ideals, and the price of social peace.

Synopsis:

A new play about biblical translation from a top UK playwright, marking the King James Bible's 400th Anniversary.
