Written on the Heart, by David Edgar: Think you know the King James Bible? Think again. This play is a celebration of the astonishing story of the 80-year-long fight to create a Bible that could be read and understood by the People. A heretic is hunted down by the Church. His illicit tome is burned, followed shortly by its author. But William Tyndale left behind something more than his own charred bones. He left behind an idea. Directed by Jerome Davis.
December 4 @ 3:00 PM - This performance will be audio described for the visually impaired
