Forthcoming courses and events
Christianity and drama
Tuesdays, 21 May – 11 June, 7-9pm in Norwich Cathedral Library
In this four-week course, we shall look at how the Christian faith has been portrayed on stage. We begin by considering the relationship between drama and religion in general, before considering specific plays, which involve Christian themes to a greater or lesser degree. These include medieval mystery plays, the plays of Shakespeare and the works of modern playwrights such as August Strindberg, Jean Anouilh and T.S. Eliot. During the course, we shall read extracts and watch film-clips from these plays.
Course Leader: Dr Chris Joby
Programme for September to December now available.
