Temple


STARTS APR 14, 2017


By Steve Waters  |   Directed By Tom Ross


In October 2011, Occupy London set up camp outside one of London’s most beloved institutions, St Paul’s Cathedral. Soon, the building that had famously survived floods, terrorist threats, and the Blitz closed its doors, and the City of London took legal action against Occupy to remove protesters — by force if necessary. Steve Waters’ new play is a fictional account of the behind-the-scenes machinations by the church and city leadership, dramatizing the turmoil faced by principled, thoughtful people who must decide which of their ideals they’ll betray. Temple was a recent hit at London's Donmar Warehouse.

Enriching... Isn't this exactly what theater is supposed to do - make you empathize with a point of view you're inclined to reject - yet so rarely actually does?
