One of the stars of Four Weddings and a Funeral will be in a show coming to the Royal and Derngate in Northampton next month.

Simon Callow appears in The Man Jesus, an extraordinary play looks back 2,000 years to witness key moments in the life of ‘the man Jesus’, through the eyes of the people who knew him.

He performs this fresh and moving account of biblical stories 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?

The Man Jesus comes to the venue as part of a limited UK tour.

Tickets for the show, on Monday November 3, cost £26 and can be booked by calling the box office on 01604 624811 or visit www.royaland
