Having won acclaim for this exciting production throughout the UK and abroad, George Dillon will bring this startling and challenging show to this part of the UK for the first time.

Dillon presents an unforgettable vision of Jesus in his highly intense, very human and occasionally humorous solo staging of the first gospel.

His impassioned portrayal of Jesus is not as a meek and mild lamb to the slaughter but as a contemporary, raging activist for God.
