Shaman John Constable on Songs of Praise

This Sunday, London street-shaman and poet John Constable will be reading from his play The Southwark Mysterieson Songs of Praise on BBC1.

The programme will be shown on 7 February from 4.55pm to 5.30pm.

John Constable will also be talking about a new production of his play, which will be performed at Southwark Cathedral, London, on 22, 23 and 24 April.

The Southwark Mysteries has only been performed in full only once before, 10 years ago, in Shakespeare’s Globe and Southwark Cathedral at Easter 2000.

The website says:

"In this apocalyptic play an outsider Jesus takes on Satan for the souls of a medieval prostitute called The Goose, her street-shaman John Crow, and the wicked people of Southwark through the ages...

"Inspired by the medieval mystery plays, this epic play is rooted in the history of Bankside, London’s ‘Outlaw Borough’. Mixing Bible stories with local folklore and contemporary humour, it presents a dramatic vision of Christ as the friend of the outcast."
