The Secret Tent

by Elizabeth Addyman. Performed 1st-6th May 2006.


“Keep me, oh God, in a secret tent, from the strife of tongues.” (Psalms)

By Martin Jones, producer: “This serious and thought provoking play is my choice for our final production of the 2005/2006 season. The title of the play is taken from a psalm and the theme of the play leads you to think that the past can often catch up with you. I am pleased to welcome Gareth McMurdo as a newcomer to our stage.”
