About Written On The Heart

The RSC Production of Written On The Heart

Marking the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible, David Edgar's critically acclaimed, must see play will open at the Duchess Theatre in April.

Across an 80 year divide, two men translate the word of God into the English tongue. For one, it means death at the stake. For the other, it could mean an archbishop's mitre.

After almost a century of unrest, the King James Bible was intended to end the violent upheavals of the English reformation. But deep-seated conflicts force a leading translator to confront the betrayal of his youthful religious ideals, for the sake of social peace.

Written by David Edgar and directed by Gregory Doran

Cast includes: Bruce Alexander, Jamie Ballard, Stephen Boxer, Paul Chahidi, Oliver Ford Davies, James Hayes, Jim Hooper, Youssef Kerkour, Joseph Kloska, Sam Marks, Ian Midlane, Mark Quartley, Daniel Stewart, Simon Thorp, Annette McLaughlin and Jodie McNee.

Produced by Bill Kenwright Ltd and Thelma Holt.

★★★★ The RSC at its best - Times

★★★★  Gregory Doran's fine production - Sunday Times

★★★★  Bracing and radical...in Gregory Doran's powerfully involving production, the piece brings the Reformation and its ideological conflicts stingingly alive -  Independent
