Who knew the Reformation could be so much fun?

In 1517, German monk Martin Luther pinned a debate proposal to his local church door – unwittingly setting off a chain of events which would lead to the European Reformation.

A Monk’s Tale is a new play by James Cary [award winning co-writer of Miranda, Another Case of Milton Jones, The Now Show], with original music and lyrics by James Sherwood.

Written to mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, A Monk’s Tale is a fast-paced hour-long gallop through the circumstances and causes which led to one of Europe’s greatest social and political upheavals. Using sketches and songs, the talented three-person cast lead us through a heady mix of corruption and crusades, popes and purgatory, sacraments and (burning at the) stakes, indulgences and indignation, and much much more – fuelled by the unstoppable social media of its day, the all-new Printing Press.

Witty and entertaining, with plenty of laugh out loud moments, this is Reformation history as you have never seen it before – suitable for all ages from 8 to 108 and for those of any faith or none at all.
