A Christmas pantomime with an Italian accent from the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Young Vic Company "Two wages. Two men's meals. Am I mad? Not half." Carlo Goldoni's 18th century comedy about a wily servant who gets the best of his masters by hook and crook is one of the great classic commedia dell'arte scripts of world drama. In this new, rapid fire adaptation by award winning dramatist Lee Hall, the language has been updated to now in order to give the action the fast-paced feeling of a Christmas pantomime. A cracker of a version certain to please all and fill the theatres.

The Christian Humanitarian Reading Initiative for Spiritual Theatre (or C.H.R.I.S.T. for short) are putting on a production of The Nativity Story. It's opening night and nothing is going to plan. Despite a collapsing manger, a deranged donkey, and a director on the brink of hysteria, the show must go on. This hilarious tour-de-force is the second farce from Theatre Mischief, creators of the critically acclaimed The Play That Goes Wrong. Once again, we watch as order unravels itself and pandemonium ensues in a piece that will be loved both as a piece to perform and one to watch. The Nativity Goes Wrong received its world premiere at Reading Rep on 22 December.

When Creon refuses to bury the body of Antigone's unruly brother, Antigone's anger quickly turns to defiance. Creon condemns her to a torturous death: she's to be buried alive. Acclaimed playwright Roy Williams takes Sophocles' play and, by placing it into a contemporary setting, brings this classic tale vividly to life. A timeless story about loyalty and truth, about how we make meaning out of life and death, and what in the end really does matter. Roy Williams's adaptation of Antigone received its world premiere on 19 September at Derby Theatre, in a co-production between Pilot Theatre, Derby Theatre and Theatre Royal, Stratford East, before going on a national tour.

It's forty million miles. Two and a half years, yeah? It takes a radiowave - right? Travelling at the speed of fucking light, 13 minutes, to get back from Mars. So . . . if anything goes wrong - anything at all - out there . . . they're really . . . they're on their own, you know? When Earth is the loneliest planet, where else is there to go? Paul is a specialist in cognitive behaviour, tasked with designing a twenty-year mission to Mars. Daniel is a husband and new father struggling with the reality of marriage and the monotony of everyday life. Nat is a twin sister, disillusioned by the world's obsession with space travel and sorry that she didn't say goodbye. And Amy asks a lot of questions . . . Following his critically acclaimed The Empire at the Royal Court, and The Swan at the National Theatre, DC Moore's Another Place is a compelling play about our obsession to uncover the secrets of space, and the tragedy of what we leave behind. Full of dark humour, razor-sharp wit and intricately portrayed characters, this is a gripping play about what it means to be human. Another Place received its world premiere at the Theatre Royal Plymouth on 6 November 2014.

There’s little question that he actually lived. But miracles? Rising from the dead? Some of the stories you hear about him sound like just that--stories. A reasonable person would never believe them, let alone the claim that he’s the only way to God! But a reasonable person would also make sure that he or she understood the facts before jumping to conclusions. That’s why Lee Strobel--an award-winning legal journalist with a knack for asking tough questions--decided to investigate Jesus for himself. An atheist, Strobel felt certain his findings would bring Christianity’s claims about Jesus tumbling down like a house of cards. He was in for the surprise of his life. Join him as he retraces his journey from skepticism to faith. You’ll consult expert testimony as you sift through the truths that history, science, psychiatry, literature, and religion reveal. Like Strobel, you’ll be amazed at the evidence--how much there is, how strong it is, and what it says. The facts are in. What will your verdict be in The Case for Christ?

The Gnostic Bible

Revised and Expanded Edition

Gnosticism was a wide-ranging religious movement of the first millennium CE—with earlier antecedents and later flourishings—whose adherents sought salvation through knowledge and personal religious experience. Gnostic writings offer striking perspectives on both early Christian and non-Christian thought. For example, some gnostic texts suggest that god should be celebrated as both mother and father, and that self-knowledge is the supreme path to the divine. Only in the past fifty years has it become clear how far the gnostic influence spread in ancient and medieval religions—and what a marvelous body of scriptures it produced. The selections gathered here, in poetic, readable translation, represent Jewish, Christian, Hermetic, Mandaean, Manichaean, Islamic, and Cathar expressions of gnostic spirituality. Their regions of origin include Egypt, the Greco-Roman world, the Middle East, Syria, Iraq, China, and France. Also included are introductions, notes, an extensive glossary, and a wealth of suggestions for further reading.
