To celebrate the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation, the Drama department and the Chaplaincy jointly hosted a performance of “A Monk’s Tale: Relics, Revolt and Reformation” in Drake Hall on Tuesday 17 October.
175 students, staff, parents and local guests enjoyed a fast-paced, irreverent evening. Three actors, who have been touring the country since the end of the Edinburgh Festival, presented an hour-long sketch show of songs, gags, and some historical explanation unveiling the life and thoughts of Martin Luther, the German monk whose publications sparked the 16th Century Reformation.
With the humour working on different levels for the different ages of the audience, a fun evening has hopefully whetted students’ appetites for some more in-depth study of this tumultuous period in European history.
