Howard Barker’s The Ecstatic Bible directed by Matjash Mrozewski in ACE 207

The Ecstatic Bible Poster

The Ecstatic Bible by Howard Barker is an epic tale featuring over 65 characters who find themselves in extraordinary situations of extreme violence, horror and suffering, but also full of dark humour and comic absurdity. At the heart of the play is the story of a Priest’s painful, unrequited desire for a woman named Gollancz, who yields to everyone’s passion but his. Various complex subplots interweave around this central narrative.

Directed by Matjash Mrozewski, this production features the Fourth Year actors performing 8 of the 29 scenes from the original work.

The Ecstatic Bible will be running in Accolade East Room 207 from January 22nd – 24th. Showtimes will be at 7 PM, with one matinee performance on the 23rd at 2 PM.

Admission is FREE, and sign-up sheets can be found on the door.
