Soldier to Saint

Soldier to Saint is an explosive, original one-act play by RISE theatre packing a powerful punch and bringing to life the inspirational story of Saint Alban, Britain’s first Christian martyr. Be emerged into the gritty world of London 2020 …where religious expression has been made illegal. John Alban is an ordinary soldier whose life is about to change forever. As Christians are forced into hiding and rioting hits the streets, John strikes an unlikely friendship with a fugitive priest – a friendship that could cost him his life. Through this thought-provoking play, RISE theatre gets straight to the heart of themes that resonate with many of us – friendship, sacrifice, the search for truth and the challenge to stand up for our beliefs and values in an increasingly secular society.

The Belmont Abbey Parish is delighted to be hosting the professional theatre company RISE Theatre at Hedley Lodge on Friday 28th March at 7.30pm, doors open at 7.00pm.

The performance is suitable for ages 12+
