Thomas Becket returns to Otford bringing King Henry II with him!
850 years after his murder in Canterbury Becket is coming back to Otford – a place where it’s said he particularly enjoyed staying while Archbishop (1162-1170) in spite of the taste of the water and the songs of its nightingales which disturbed his devotions!
‘A Turbulent Priest’ is a musical by James Cary and James Sherwood retelling the medieval bromance in sketch & song between Henry and Becket that ended in more than tears! The two-man show is both funny and thought-provoking. It illustrates what can happen when the worlds of political power and Christian faith collide.
Messrs Cary & Sherwood are both sitcom writers for BBC TV & Radio and have collaborated previously with A Monk’s Tale and The God Particle.
Following performances at the Edinburgh Fringe ‘A Turbulent Priest’ is touring the UK and coming to St Bart’s Church on Saturday 19 October at 6:30 pm.
