Bible on a Washing Line is a new production written especially for Bible Fresh. The show is a Bible overview using a TOP 10 style to explore some of the amazing stories in the Bible. This show is fun and family friendly as we take a light hearted look at the Bible through the eyes of forensic scientists, fashion students, a talk show host, uncle dave and many other characters. We are touring with this production in May, please check out details on our website or through the Bible Fresh calendar.

Peoples’ lives are changed and spiritual powers are engaged. This is suitable for an individual church or group of churches to run and serves as a means of witness as well as celebration. To help you organise a successful Bible Readathon, a book and CD are available, which include time plans, sign-up sheets, confirmation letters, slips and sample invitations...
Host a Bible reading marathon in a public space (or Cathedral/Church), possibly during the season of lent and invite local politicians, head teachers, police to consider reading a chapter.

We take children to see Santa every year - and we love going. So why not the Christmas Story, too? (Especially as 30% of under-twenty-fives have never heard it...) Why not a professional, spectacular, heart-warming piece of theatre, happening in every town centre, every December, every day? As easy as visiting Santa in his grotto... It's starting in Cardiff, 2010 - the gift of the churches to the people. In 2011 it will roll out across Britain. You provide the location. We provide the tools. Together we build a new tradition. "Christmas - The Story" will be available for churches everywhere.

Touring to theatres and churches throughout 2011: A stunning virtuoso delivery of the greatest story ever told! Acclaimed by critics and audiences in theatres and churches throughout the UK, award-winning actor, George Dillon presents an unforgettable vision of Jesus in his highly intense, very human and occasionally humorous solo staging of the first Gospel with an original music score and video background. Short-listed for The Stage's 'Best Actor' Award in Edinburgh, Dillon's epic, impassioned performance portrays Jesus not as a meek and mild lamb to the slaughter, but as a contemporary raging fighter for God. For details of his touring schedule, take a look at our events calendar or visit www.georgedillon.com
Jimmy the talking Bible speaks for himself! He likes going to church, but has difficulty getting there without any legs! You need to take the Word of God with you, or it will just stay on the shelf and attract dust. This is an ideal puppet to use with all ages, and a fun way to teach memory verses to children.
Check out some great drama sketches on this website. The scripts are free to download!
The story of the Bible in common English
To engage with Biblefresh, and to begin exploring the biblical theme for their main event this year, Spring Harvest is joining forces with a few of Britain’s Cathedrals and some larger churches to commemorate 400 years of the King James Bible and celebrate the retelling of scripture for every generation. They’re joined by poet Gerard Kelly and historian Derek Wilson for an eight-date tour, sharing insights and reflections on the text, set alongside Lacey Theatre Company’s extracts from the award-winning ‘Word on the Street’ (formerly ‘the street bible’). Ancient meets modern, text meets expression and people meet scripture in an ever-unfolding story. It will be an opportunity to explore how the Bible has shaped and influenced our culture, and to enjoy an evening of theatre, poetry and more. The tour runs from 4th-13th February 2011 and lands in Brighton, Peterborough, Wakefield, Manchester, Stafford, Malmesbury, Guildford and Exeter. Tickets are £5. See the website for more information.
In 2011 Shakespeare’s Globe will celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible which was completed in 1611, and the enduring power of dramatic language with a season entitled 'The Word is God'. Priority booking will open in January, exclusively for Friends of Shakespeare's Globe and public booking will open in mid-February. Go to the website to find out more.
Monologues from the unheard women of the Bible

Alternatively, you could book the author to perform them herself. She's delighting audiences up and down the country with her accessible take on scripture, giving vivacious voice to the charming and alarmingly frank WAGs of the Bible.
