Written On the Heart

When: Dec. 1-18 2016

What a difference seventy-five years can make. In playwright David Edgar's Written on the Heart, William Tyndale faces burning at the stake in 1536, while Lancelot Andrewes may be named archbishop in 1611, for the same task: translating the Bible into English. Burning Coal Theatre Company has produced a number of Edgar's brainy, politically incisive works over the years; in the American premiere of this 2011 opus, he probes the facts and factions behind the creation of one of the landmarks in Western literature: the King James Bible. Burning Coal artistic director Jerome Davis directs a cast headed by John Allore as Tyndale and George Jack as Andrewes.. —Byron Woods
