Grace (Bloody Livid Theatre Company)

By | Published on Sunday 19 August 2018

Nigel and Sarah, two devout Christians, are doing all they can to lead sacred lives – they say grace, they only drink parsnip wine, and they certainly don’t engage in anything pagan. They are the epitome of Holy – perhaps a little too Holy – that is, until Father Samuels arrives. He’s a devilishly naughty priest, and the darkly absurd humour comes from the juxtaposition between his risqué behaviour and their innocent naivety, excellently performed by actors with a natural flair for comic timing. Shocking and outrageous in equal measure, it’s a play that will test your limits, but if you can stomach that level of bawdiness, then you’ll cringe until you cry, or at the very least, be highly entertained.

theSpace On The Mile, until 25 Aug.
