The Faith Machine has just opened at the Royal Court (it runs from 25 August to 1 October). The Royal Court is another of my favourite theatres in London. It is pretty much THE best place for new writing, the ticket prices are very reasonable (all tickets on Monday are £10 and you can get in for £12 on other days), and all the seats in the theatre have good views. I am going to see this right at the end of its run so I won't be able to write my review/reaction to it in time to get people along to it but it sounds very interesting and I think it will be very good!

The Faith Machine
by Alexi Kaye Campbell
On a beautiful September morning in New York Sophie forces Tom into a decision. The choice he makes, and the events of that day, will change their lives forever.
Travelling from America to Britain to a remote Greek island this epic new play explores the relationship between faith and capitalism and asks fundamental questions about the true meaning of love.
It is written by Alexi Kaye Campbell and directed by Jamie Lloyd.
The cast includes Ian McDiarmid, who played Maximus in Emperor and Galilean.
