Think you know your King James Bible?  Think again.

David Edgar’s roaring 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.

“a learned, information-packed and engrossing play” – Michael Billington, The Guardian
