This will be no ordinary online event! Blessed Assurance brings together actors, singers and musicians, all of whom will be contributing from different locations on the night. It promises to be a lot of fun!

Darren’s theatre company Damn Cheek usually performs Blessed Assurance as a dinner theatre event, so you are of course most welcome to bring your own dinner while you watch the reading!

To reserve your place, simply email Damn Cheek directly. They’ll send you details of how to join nearer the time.

From Damn Cheek’s website:

Blessed Assurance tracks the lives, beliefs and relationships of childhood friends Tom and Pete, who become very different Anglican priests, and of Anne and Liza, the sisters they marry.

Exploring marital stresses and expectations, the place of faith in an increasingly rootless world, and the fate of independent investment firms in the city, we follow the story of Tom’s development from teenage Christian radical to liberal theologian; from love-struck student to maturity; and his search for a meaningful faith in the 21st century.

We hope to see you online!
