PILGRIMS at the Etcetera Theatre, London - Tue 21 May - Sun 9 June 2013
The Teaser trailer for Pilgrims
"Leadeth me not into temptation. I can find it on my own."
Huge crowds are gathering in Hyde Park where Pope Benedict XVI will deliver a sermon and the excitement is mounting. Meanwhile in a house in the Midlands, Roman Catholic Ruth is trying to get her difficult children and elderly father into the car. Her teenage daughter Beth would rather watch the Hollyoaks omnibus than see the Pope, Will’s OCD is making him anxious and their domineering grandfather is rapidly losing his patience. When Beth’s secret boyfriend Jarir turns up unannounced arguments break out and secrets are uncovered that threaten to tear the family apart.
In spring 2013 Raise Dark presented their début production at the Etcetera theatre. Pilgrims is a darkly comic play set in real-time written by Royal Court Studio writer Sarah Page, directed by Kevin Williams.
Pilgrims returned to the Etcetera after a sold out showcase at the theatre as part of their PNPA festival of new works in January.
