Tyndale Written on the Heart at Stratford

This autumn the RSC celebrates William Tyndale and the 400th anniversary of the making of the King James Bible with new play Written on the Heart, which opens the Winter Season in the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon.

The play tells the story of translators Tyndale and Lancelot Andrewes, both working to the same end but in very different circumstances eighty years apart.

Directed by RSC Chief Associate Director Gregory Doran, Written on the Heart was written for the RSC by David Edgar, whose most recent credits for the Company include Maydays and Pentecost.

The role of Tyndale is played by Stephen Boxer, who played Petruchio in the 2008 production of The Taming of the Shrew. Lancelot Andrewes is played by Oliver Ford Davies, who appeared most recently with the RSC as Polonius in the 2008 production of Hamlet.
