Comedy in the Gospel of John

16/08/2017, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Chipping Campden Parish Rooms


9.30-4.30 SATURDAY 19 AUGUST

Are you a Christian? Do you have a sense of humour?

Do you enjoy theatre or even acting?

A limited number of spaces are available for a day of exploring the Gospel of John, looking specifically at the comedy (yes, comedy) that John has written in or left space for. The day will start with an introduction to some theological background to the study of the Gospel that encourages their performance in a humorous way. We’ll continue by reading the texts as scripts to see what how they lend themselves to comedy and we’ll finish by acting out some of the scenes. No theological expertise is necessary. The day will be led by Rev Sheila Rosenthal, an experienced teacher and preacher on the comedy of the Gospels.

Numbers are strictly limited to 20. The cost of the day is £15.00, £8.00 for concessions. Application to join the day is by completed form available from and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Participants must be over 18. Study/performance materials and light refreshments, but NOT lunch, will be provided.

The day will take place at the
