Expect the wine and conversation to flow
Red Tape’s production of Henrik Ibsen’s Brand has been praised by critics as being “Absorbing, Ambitious, and Surreal”. It is also a trenchant commentary on the history of the church and of faith. To find out more, see Brand on Sunday, October 23rd and 29th at 2:00. Following the performance Graeme Thomson will lead an informal talk and discussion on church history, church politics and how they are central to a fuller understanding both of Brand and of Ibsen.
