The Sentence is the story of John Scrivener who, in the 16th century was sentenced to death by burning. His crime was to translate the Bible into English. His daughter Joan was sentenced to light the fire. Both are the victims of illogical and unreasonable rules which have angry echoes for anyone confronted by an insane enforcement of law which is outdated, outmoded and cruel.
This powerful play explores themes of language and justice looking at the difficulties facing people who dare to challenge authority. Age advice 10+
