What does it mean to believe in something? What does it cost?
SPAIN. Sixteenth century. The inquisition. Political hysteria. After a conversion experience, everything changes. We follow Inigo (Ignatius of Loyola) from ambitious, hotÂheaded, streetÂfighting
sensualist to co-founding, with a radical group of young friends, The Society of Jesus. (The Jesuits). They were loved or hated, facing huge opposition in Rome. The current Pope is a Jesuit.
Bold, passionate, funny, entertaining and poetic, Mooreâ€™s play is not only for those who are interested in Loyola and The Jesuits. It is also an allegorical story of anyone who wants change and
meets with savage opposition from any Establishment.
The fine cast is drawn from actors with experience at the RSC, Shakespeareâ€™s Globe, Almeida, West End, TV, film and radio.
Jonathan Moore (Writer and Director) is an award winning international actor, writer and director who has worked with RSC, Royal Opera, ENO, BBC,Â Shakespeare’s Globe,
Donmar, and Almeida among many others.
Aurora Metro are delighted to be publishing the play – find out more here.
