Lent Week 3
'Racing Demon’ follows a group of vicars in inner-city London struggling to come to terms with the modern world. People no longer trust their way of life, and scandal is never too far away from them. Lionel is a man who no longer relies on his faith. Tony navigates his own chaotic morals to little success. Frances is forced to anchor the lost souls of her life, despite holding no beliefs of her own. Harry is hounded by the press looking for a juicy story, struggling to keep his private life under wraps. These people do their best to fight in the face of persecution, asking the question: "How do you fight without hate?" David Hare’s ‘Racing Demon’ opened in 1990 to universal acclaim, and won four awards as Play of the Year. It has enjoyed numerous revivals, and continues to be respected as an exploration of religion, conflict and politics.
