Stalwart of stage and screen Simon Callow performs this fresh and moving account of biblical stories in The Man Jesus coming the New Victoria Theatre, Woking on Wed 22 October.

This extraordinary play looks back two thousand years to witness key moments in the life of ‘the man Jesus’, through the eyes of the people who knew him.

Simon Callow, one of Britain's best-loved actors, performs many biblical tales including the raising of Lazarus, the wedding at Cana and the journey to Jerusalem. His powerful portrayal of the tyrants, traitors and madmen in Jesus’ life asks people of all faiths and none: what sort of a man was able to inspire the history of the world?

They have included The Mystery of Charles Dickens by Peter Ackroyd, There Reigns Love, a performance of Shakespeare’s sonnets, Dr Marigold & Mr Chops by Charles Dickens, Being Shakespeare by Jonathan Bate and Inside Wagner’s Head. He will be performing Juvenalia at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe. On screen, Callow is best known for roles in Four Weddings and a FuneralShakespeare in Love, Room with a View and Amadeus. He has worked in television for over 30 years, has directed over 30 shows, includingCarmen Jones and the West End / Broadway productions of Shirley Valentine, has directed many operas and written 16 books.
