Customer Reviews

"These are the only religious dramas conceived for cathedral and chancel production to achieve international applause since T.S. Eliot's Murder in the Cathedral in the mid-1930s, and Christopher Fry's A Sleep of Prisoners in the early 1950s. They belong in every good theatre library and will be of abiding interest to producers and directors of both secular and sacred stages. Corey has a theatrical genius for conceiving and creating dramatic rituals of abiding power and magnetism, evidenced in his adaptations and staging."
