Racing Demon

by David Hare
Directed by David Thompson
Associate Producer Tiffany Breeze
26th April – 4th May 1996
The Company would like to thank the Church of St Francis of Assisi, Welwyn Garden City; St Michael and All Angels, Hatfield and the Bishop of Bedford

Rightly referred to as a ‘masterpiece’, this award-winning play is the first in David Hare’s trilogy in which each play deals with the crises facing a great British institution. Racing Demon addresses many of the problems facing the Church of England by telling the story of an inner-city team of clergymen whose liberal-minded approach is challenged by the arrival of a young curate. As the team, together and individually, strive to make sense of their role and purpose in the local community, they attract the concern and attention of the Church establishment.

Racing Demon is a play of considerable dramatic power — very moving and at times highly amusing.
