The Devil’s Passion

From the award-winning writer of “Scaramouche Jones” & “The Madness of George Dubya” and the award-winning director of “Morecambe”, “Twelve Angry Men” & “Animal Farm” Passion Pit Theatre presents

THE DEVIL’S PASSION
or Easter in Hell
A divine comedy in one act

Written & performed by Justin Butcher, directed by Guy Masterson designed by Sarah June Mills, with music & sound by Jack C. Arnold

33 AD. Jesus enters Jerusalem to fulfill his destiny. Satan ascends from Hell to stop him. A battle begins  for the soul of humanity.

“A light sandblasting for jaded souls, a gleefully heretical flavour timely, beautifully-written, ingenious, poignant – an impressively versatile performance. Butcher’s writing shines.” (The Huffington Post)

“A serious and seriously fine piece of writing, a terrific performance, a startlingly original presentation  it crackles with great lines.” (The Church Times)

Award-winning playwright Justin Butcher, author of the world-famous “Scaramouche Jones”, starring Pete Postlethwaite and directed by Rupert Goold, the hit anti-war satire “The Madness Of George Dubya” and the controversially acclaimed “Go To Gaza, Drink The Sea”, now turns his pen to the greatest story of all.

By turns comic, gripping, poetic, pungent and heart-stirring, “The Devil’s Passion” offers a radically fresh perspective on the timeless narrative by renowned satirist, playwright and actor Justin Butcher, an audacious hells-eye view of the Passion of Christ from a master storyteller. Directed by Olivier-Award winner Guy Masterson  (“Morecambe”, “Twelve Angry Men”, “Animal Farm”), designed by Sarah June Mills (“Captain Show Off”, “The Women of Troy”, “The Archivists”), with a haunting and evocative new soundscape by Jack C. Arnold (“War And Peace”, “Holy Flying Circus”, “The Woman In Black”).
