Summary

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.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast recording, starring Jared Harris, Lesley Nichol, Rosie Fellner, Paul Fox, Jason Hughes, Martin Jarvis, Christopher Neame, Alan Shearman, Simon Templeman, Jane Wall, and Matthew Wolf. Directed by Rosalind Ayres. Recorded before an audience by L.A. Theatre Works.

The complete list of actors includes Simon Templeman, Jane Wall, and Matthew Wolf.

Wasn’t expecting a theatre recording, but good

Thought it might be more like a BBC radio adaptation, but this was a recording of a performance in a theatre. Not sure if it’s been adapted so that things you would see on stage are instead mentioned in dialogue, but it was done very well.
Great David Hare work, and as it’s one of his ‘State of the nation’ (ie of their time) plays, i was pleased to have chance to listen it, as it seems unlikely to be restaged soon.

Religious trash

Do not buy this book. Religious trash based on the Anglican communion and debated by idiots.
