HERESY Makes World Premiere at The Tabard Theatre Tonight
Heresy, a new play from Tilo Ulbricht, produced by Questioning Productions receives its World premiere at The Tabard Theatre tonight, 6 March 2014.
The Spanish Inquisition is at its height. Two men, both searching for meaning in their lives, but whose paths have led them in different directions- one to the Church, the other, to the Cathars, and both with the same woman in their hearts. 5 years later in Granada the extraordinary happens. Three strangers have appeared whose presence touches all whom they encounter, and a new Inquisitor General has been appointed. A meeting that will challenge belief to its core.
'Heresy' by Tilo Ulbricht, is a play inspired by Fyodor Dostoevsky's 'The Grand Inquisitor', a parable within his masterpiece 'The Brothers Karamazov', wherein the Russian author imagines that Jesus suddenly reappears in the midst of the Inquisition in 16th century Spain. The play enters into ethical debates of God, free will and morality and is a spiritual drama of moral struggles.
A local Chiswick resident, Tilo Ulbricht is a playwright, poet, translator and editor. As well as his own poems, he has translated many of German poet Rainer Maria Rilke's poems, and is editor for 'Parabola' magazine.
Heresy was staged as a rehearsed reading at The Arcola in London in July 2013. Directed by Daniel Zappi and Rachael Maya, and produced by Questioning Productions, Heresy receives a limited run at the Tabard theatre until 22nd March.
Tickets: £16 (concessions)/£14. The production runs at The Tabard Theatre, March 4th- 22nd (Tue-Sat) 7:30 p.m. Box Office www.tabardtheatre.co.uk or 0208 995 6035.
