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."
