THE NEW ARCADIANS PRESENT:
Haggard by Will Attenborough and Harry Michell
Tue 19th – Sat 23rd February 2013 at 9.30pm £6/5
‘Do not condemn and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it’ll be given to you.’
Ted Haggard is the most powerful evangelist in America. With a following of 30 million and the President on speed dial, he is at the top of his game – the father to many lives.
In a week, Ted’s world will be publicly and profoundly devastated. Exiled and ashamed, he and his family will be forced to confront a dark reality, and to examine just how far faith and humanity can co-exist.
From the writers of Post and the winner of ‘Best Writer/Play’ in The 24hr Plays (2010), Haggard – based on verbatim records of sermons, interviews, and press conferences – constructs the private story behind one of the most public falls from grace in modern American history.
