The Occupy Movement and Christianity both think of themselves as founded upon the values of kindness, compassion and equality. In October 2011, these two movements came into direct conflict when protesters established a camp on the steps of St Paul's.
Steve Waters' new play 'Temple' asks what is the position of Christianity in modern society. Should it be a safeguard of established traditions or take a more active role in fighting against injustice? A fictional reconstruction of the days leading up to the forced removal of Occupy, this production examines the debates that raged within the Cathedral walls. Questions of purpose, questions of politics, questions of faith.
