From Patrick Barlow (The 39 Steps), Ben Hur follows an amateur theatre troupe as they produce the massive tale of the fictional prince and merchant, Judah Ben-Hur. He falls to galley slave and rises to champion charioteer within Jerusalem during the life of Jesus Christ, while the actors struggle along through the piece as rivalries form and offstage romances interfere. Complete with a chariot race, sea battle, stage combat and a decadent and unexpurgated Roman orgy (suitable for kids!), all in a 4m x 4xm venue, Ben Hur is the very epic to stir your soul.
