Written on the Heart

The Royal Shakespeare Company honors the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible with their new production, Written on the Heart. The play examines how the King James Bible was written and ultimately came into being.

The playwright, David Edgar, brings both historical events and the power of the faith and the heart into the forefont of his play. Though difficult to follow at times, there is no deneying the talented actors of the RSC. This is probably one of the best acted plays so far this season.

Stephen Boxer as William Tyndale and Oliver Ford Davies as Bishop Andrews give astounding performances in voice, body and emotion. It is the ultimate pleasure to hear and watch the two of them on the stage together, in a production that cannot be missed!
