Exploring workshop - looking at the play of John the Evangelist

Exploring: John the Evangelist - 1520-57 (printed c.1550)
From our Exploring workshop, where we read through the text of this play for future use towards an audio/stage show. John the Evangelist is a strange beast, with little in the way of plot it's a series of scenes orbiting the preaching of the titular character. Whilst it's fair to say we didn't warm to the dialogue, the dramaturgy of the play really sparked an interest. There's more to this play than meets the eye. 
The Beyond Shakespeare Irregulars this episode are Richard Fawcett, Maria Walker and Mark Scanlon, with your host Robert Crighton.
