Scientist Grace Friedman has fought irrational belief her entire career, becoming the country’s most vocal advocate for atheism. So it comes almost as a personal affront when her own son, Tom, decides to become an Anglican priest. And why aren’t her husband and Tom’s fiancée as upset as she is? Yet when tragedy falls, she finds that you can have all the arguments and still not have the answers. Mind versus soul.
A collaboration between philosopher AC Grayling and theatre director Mick Gordon, Grace combines a powerful debate about faith with heartrending drama.
