A Monk's Tale

Relics, Revolt and Reformation


Horrible Histories meets Monty Python in this new historical comedy. Written to mark the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s Reformation, the talented three-person cast lead us through a heady mix of indulgences and indignation, politics and purgatory, saints and sinners, religion and revolution which helped to shape the modern world – fuelled by the unstoppable social media of the day, the all-new Printing Press.

Written by award winning James Cary, co-author of Miranda and The God Particle, with music and lyrics by James Sherwood, A Monk’s Tale will be launched at the Edinburgh Festival and will then go on national tour – with Ludlow as one of the first stops.
