A Progress by Carl Heap at The Yard in Hackney Wick


Beggarsbelief Theatre Company presents A Progress, by Carl Heap based on John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress, at The Yard, in Hackney Wick, east London, from 15 Aug to 1 Sep 2012.

"The Pilgrim’s Progress - the dream of a 17th Century jailbird - is a dramatic adventure story, asking the questions that human ‘progress’ never quite satisfactorily answers, like: What in heaven or hell’s name am I doing here? Bunyan was selling salvation – we’re selling an evening’s entertainment with songs, music, laughs and spectacle. Come and take offence, sit on a fence, wince, whinge, cringe, judge, begrudge, and trudge alongside our bemused, bothered and bewildered protagonist as he wades into the Slough of Despond, does battle with the Giant Despair and goes shopping in Vanity Fair."

Looking for the best seats...
