Brighton Fringe 2007
George Dillon’s Gospel of Matthew
Venue: The Nightingale Theatre
Festival: Brighton Fringe
The Gospel of Matthew brought to Life…
Playing upstairs in the black box of The Nightingale Theatre surrounded by a semi-circle of candles, water, stone and bread, Matthew enters gripping every audience member by the hand and so begins an inspiring evening.
George Dillon manages to make each scene so vivid and alive through a multitude of characters (some humorous, some severe) just with nothing more than his voice and body – creating a simple and beautiful world. I was truly drawn in and left spell-bound.
The modernisation and translation of the language was unique and made it fresh and very accessible.
There is nothing else to say, other than it was an awesome and inspiring evening, by far the best thing I have seen in a very long time and I urge you to go see it for yourself. 5 Stars for a 5 Star Performance.
