Inheritance - First night review
“We saw the opening night of Riding Lights’ ‘Inheritance’ in Halifax Minster on March 14th; it’s now touring nationally, reaching St Mary’s on April 5th [7.30pm].
What can we say? It’s powerfully crafted and superbly acted. In an interview, playwright Bridget Foreman says her aim is to create drama that ‘sharpens our understanding, or reveals to us things that we’d never noticed before’. ‘ Inheritance’ certainly achieves this: Jesus debates the old v new order, Jesus fights inequality and injustice, Jesus offers physical and psychological healing. The play gets right under the skin of the challenges he faced and resonates sharply with our own times.
We travelled a long way to see ‘Inheritance’; we were amply rewarded. Do join us in St. Mary’s, Saturday 5th April at 7.30."
Paul and Deborah Sibly
