Reverend Richard Coles: #SimpleCountryParson

Reverend Richard Coles: #SimpleCountryParson

Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2019

Revd Richard Coles is on a fortnight's leave from his country parish and has been excused from his co-presenting duties of Saturday Live (BBC Radio 4) to bring to Edinburgh this hilarious yet deeply moving one-parson show. Attempting to live a hybrid life as the 59th Vicar of Finedon, Richard discusses hatching, matching and dispatching among the gingerbread stone houses, neighbouring Weetabix factory and Primark Distribution Centre – alongside his alternative life as a broadcaster, writer, panel game show contestant, Strictly veteran and (thanks to being voted Most Whimsical Vicar on the wireless) borderline national trinket.
