Description

Four clergymen seek to make sense of their mission while being torn in all directions by the Church of England. After a critically lauded debut in 1990 at London's National Theatre, Racing Demon went on to earn universal acclaim. More than 20 years later, David Hare's bold and moving revelations on gay ordination and the doctrine of the priesthood ring more resoundingly than ever.

Professional reviews

"The English seem to have a special way of talking with God. In David Hare's highly acclaimed play, four men--an inner-city rector, a curate, a bishop, and a lowly cleric--question their personal faith and resolve as they run up against the established hierarchy in this 1990 post-Thatcher-era examination of the Church of England. The perfectly voiced British actors Martin Jarvis, OBE, and Jared Harris ("Mad Men") lead an outstanding ensemble in giving a lively, theatrical feel to this solid adaptation. Audio drama is at its best when projecting aural intimacy and intensity. When these characters take on such hot-button issues as gay marriage, women in the priesthood, and abortion, the play seems as relevant as it did during the time it was written.
