Presented by Bristol Old Vic Ferment
Written and performed by Amy Mason
When the bus Amy Mason was travelling on ran two people over she found herself praying for the first time in years. The experience led her to think about life, faith, and the way we deal with tragedy in an increasingly secular society.
Told using the structure of a Roman Catholic mass, Amy explores her own Catholic upbringing, her rejection of faith, and asks questions about religious experience and the value of religious ritual.
Previously seen as a work-in-progress in the July 2014 Ferment Fortnight, Mass is a funny, moving autobiographical solo show for those of us who aren't quite sure how we feel about God.
