The Theatre Royal Bath has released these great first look production photos of David Hare's play Racing Demon directed by Jonathan Church.

Four clergymen seek to make sense of their mission in inner-city London whilst facing their own personal crises. There’s Lionel Espy, a cleric whose faith is wavering as his parishioners dwindle; tabloid-hounded gay vicar Harry Henderson; ‘Streaky’ Bacon, a genial reverend with a taste for tequila, and a charismatic young curate, Tony Ferris whose arrival is set to fan the flames, whilst his sexual relationship with his lover turns to ash. The day of judgement is at hand for all.

The cast of Racing Demon includes Olivier Award-winning David Haig will star as Lionel Espy,  Sam Alexander, Michelle Bonnard, Anthony Calf, William Chubb, Paapa Essiedu, Andrew Fraser, Ian Gelder, Rebecca Night, Amanda Root and Ashley Russell.

Racing Demon is the first production in Jonathan Church's innaugural season as Artistic Director of Theatre Royal Bath's annual Summer Season.

Racing Demon plays at the Theatre Royal Bath from 21 June to 8 July 2017.
