Bible show

Actors from Would You Adam and Eve ItA unique Bible show - which gained a 5 star review at the Edinburgh festival - is coming to Southport this summer.

You can experience 90 Bible chapters in 90 fun-filled minutes with Would You Adam and Eve It, in association with Bible Society. It's on national tour and will be at Holy Trinity Church, Southport, on Friday 28 June.

When Searchlight Theatre Company performed it at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017, the Review gave it five stars and raved, "It’s a must-see: friendly, frenetic and so funny that the person next to me was crying with laughter throughout. The show was true to the Biblical narrative at every twist and turn, but also wallowed in the bizarre and brilliant details."
