Olympic Laughter: Comedy and Sport in St Mary’s Church Beverley

Some might be surprised to find St Mary’s welcoming a troop of actors whose performance is described as ‘epic, energetic and full of unusual sporting skills’. After all at one time straightforward drama never mind comedy would not have been allowed in the .

But on Wednesday 30th May 2012 we are welcoming Riding Lights Company who will be performing their Olympic Themed play – ‘MONSIEUR DE COUBERTIN’S MAGNIFICENT OPYMLIC FEAT!’

And we are delighted because it is not just limbering up for an athletic summer, here in many will be glued to the TV’s celebrating human achievement.

So as the stadium is being finished and the torch is on its way St Mary’s will be opening its doors to a comedy about Baron Pierre de Coubertin who helped create the Olympics game.

The reviews of this show (which is on National Tour) have been great – according to the York press who reviewed the show ‘Riding Lights must take Gold for packing non-stop humour and fast-paced historic and cultural detail into a first-class performance’.

It is exciting to have a professional company performing in in St Mary’s.

It is just the kind of thing the should be doing: celebrating with those who are celebrating, laughing and enjoying the creativity that God has given us. Some might imagine that the is stuffy and cold but we want it to be warm and welcoming, a place where can come together and laugh!

The show is taking place on Wednesday 30th May at 7:30pm
