    The Book of Margery Kempe @ Camden Fringe, 2024
    By Nadia Lines

    After a sold out run and a 5 star review, The Book of Margery Kempe is coming to London!

    ‘I may be a creature, but I am God’s creature!’

    Margery Kempe is a normal housewife. She has fourteen children, a useless husband, and no education. But God has chosen her for a very special purpose. She’s been given the gift of tears, and she’s going to make sure you hear them.

    As Margery’s raucous and ravishing visions of God begin to derail her life, she starts to attract more and more attention. And soon she’s on trial for heresy. But Margery won’t be quiet, and the visions won’t stop. In fact, they’re becoming more intense.

    In this fast-paced, time travelling retelling of the autobiography of one of the Middle Age’s most incredible women, Margery takes to the stage to give us her life in her own words – tears and all.

    'Captivating'
    'Effortlessly witty'
    'The epitome of what [...] student theatre strives to be'
