Cut and pasted from the RSC website:

David Edgar's critically acclaimed play about the creation of the King James Bible is to open at the Duchess Theatre in April.

Written on the Heart marks the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible, one of the most widely published texts in the English language. It tells the story of two men who, across an 80-year divide, translate the word of God into English. For one, it means death at the stake. For the other, it could mean an archbishop's mitre.

Written on the Heart opens at the Duchess Theatre, Catherine Street, London on 23 April.

Another successful production making a transfer is good news.


I actually want the RSC to transfer the majority of their Stratford productions to London as they used to do in the good old days!
