Anyone who saw Michael Mears’ one-man show ‘This Evil Thing’ in Bristol Cathedral in October 2017 will know what a powerful piece of theatre it is. We are now pleased to present two new performances, linked to the Commemoration, Conflict & Conscience festival at the end of April. The two performances (3.30pm and 7.30pm) take place on Sunday April 21st – Easter Sunday in the atmospheric surroundings of the crypt of St John the Baptist Church, one of Bristol’s oldest medieval buildings.

The play brings together the stories of Bert Brocklesby, a schoolteacher and preacher at his Methodist chapel and Bertrand Russell, one of the greatest philosophers of his time. With the advent of military conscription their worlds are about to be turned upside down.
‘Magnificent storytelling’ (Amnesty International)
