posted in: shows | 0

The Vaults, London

“My daddy wasn’t nobody – you think I care you the Son of God?”

A man whose father tried to sacrifice him.
Two sisters with a dark family secret.
A man on death row whose cell mate claims to be the Messiah.

TESTAMENT presents four overlooked Bible characters – a ragtag group of women, children, outcasts and thieves – and resets them in modern day America, giving these unknown voices a chance to finally tell their side of the story. Featuring a haunting live score of gospel and blues, TESTAMENT is a compelling and human exploration of the dark underside of The Greatest Story Ever Told.

Right Mess believe in hearing as wide a range of voices as possible, and we believe politically engaged theatre needs to listen as well as preach. To that end, we bring together artists with charities, experts and those with personal experience to make work that addresses the problems we face as a society.
