The Gospel of Matthew by Candelight

Acclaimed by critics and audiences in theatres and churches throughout the UK, award-winning actor George Dillon will be performing the Gospel of Matthew in churches across Brighton, London and the South East during Lent (1st March - 14th April 2017) this year by candlelight. 25% of the ticket sales will be going to support local homeless charities.

Inspired by an encounter with Bob Geldof at Euston Station, created in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, and short-listed for The Stage's 'Best Actor' Award in Edinburgh, Dillon's epic, impassioned performance portrays Jesus not as a meek and mild lamb to the slaughter but as a contemporary raging fighter for God.

Since the première at the Brighton Festival in 2002, Dillon has performed The Gospel of Matthew nearly 150 times in the UK, including three runs in Edinburgh and appearances at the Greenbelt, Soul in the City and Pentecost festivals as well as in Canada, Poland and Bermuda.

Tickets are £10 (£5 concs) and will be available on the door or in advance from the church office (at most churches) or online from ticketsource.co.uk/dillon (0333 666 3366).
