Roughshod Public Performance at St Luke's - Saturday 24th March - Doors 6:40 for 7:00pm start to 9:30pm

An entertaining evening with the Roughshod players.

Mixing comedy, dramatic storytelling, spoken word and the personal experience of the actors themselves, Riding Lights Roughshod deliver 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.

Join our five performers for an energetic, entertaining show about faith, hope and everything in between. Five young people in search of their futures reveal some surprising stories of hope in their new faith-filled show for 2018. A passenger on a train gets help from an unexpected stranger, a community is transformed by a shattering lesson, a small time crook gets an offer he can’t refuse….

This event promises to be one of the highlights of Roughshod's 10 day visit to Maidenhead.   

Make a note in your diaries and invite your friends!!
