The People’s Passion and Roughshod Deliver come to Maidenhead


COME along to St Luke’s in Maidenhead this Saturday evening for an energetic, entertaining show about faith, hope and everything in between.

Five young people in search of their futures reveal stories of hope in their new faith-filled show for 2018. Mixing comedy, dramatic storytelling, spoken word and the personal experience of the actors themselves, Riding Lights Roughshod delivers a show that asks: what happens when God intervenes in ordinary lives? In an anxious world of mixed messages, it can be hard to find truth among the headlines.

Riding Lights Roughshod is a Christian Theatre Group based in York. The five members of Roughshod are in Maidenhead for 10 days and are visiting schools, churches and community centres to perform and lead a range of different activities. They are being hosted by the churches of St Luke, All Saints and the Good Shepherd, Cox Green as part of a Year of Mission.

Tickets are £5 each and can be booked here.  Riding Lights Roughshod is also performing on Sunday morning (Palm Sunday) when they will be performing The People’s Passion, complete with audience involvement, at 9.45am in the Desborough Suite of the Town Hall. Entrance is free and open to everyone.

The Revd Joan Hicks, Vicar of the Church of the Good Shepherd, Cox Green, said, ’We are delighted to be able to offer people this fantastic opportunity to come and see Riding Lights Roughshod in action! The production on Saturday promises to be engaging, fun and thought-provoking. The group has done some great work in our local schools this week and we are looking forward to more of their unique approach to theatre both on Saturday evening and on Sunday morning when they will be leading an audience participation performance of The People’s Passion.’
