Out of the Ashes by Regents Theological College and Searchlight Theatre Company is a theatrical dramatisation of Peter Gladwin’s Best Selling book.

“Mum liked to go next door for a cup of tea, she wasn’t a bad mother but the babies had come along so fast and she was always worried about money, she was desperate for a minuet’s peace. A minute later she heard screaming. “Fire, mummy! The rug’s on fire I couldn’t get hold of Peter – too many flames…”

With 75% burns, no toes, no fingers on his left hand and severe scarring, Peter’s beginning was bleak. This bleakness led to drugs, alcohol, violence and to despair… “Why me?” But before Peter could cut his life short his sister Anette who couldn’t get to him through the flames told him about something that could save him from something far more dangerous – the darkness that threatened to consume him. “Believe. Believe in life, believe that joy is possible, and believe that there is something beyond…” If you’ve ever looked at your life and thought “why me?” then this remarkable true life story is for you.

This brand new production from Regents Theological College and Searchlight Theatre Company, accompanied by Peter Gladwin himself, will be touring nationally from 23rd June till the 6th July and asks the painful questions about God’s existence and presence during suffering. We are looking for thirteen to fourteen venues to partner with us and host this production. The evening will consist of an hour and ten minute play, followed by a short talk and question and answer session with Peter Gladwin, author of Out of the Ashes: The restoration of a burned boy. The production only costs £200 to book (which also covers travel) and an agreed underwrite of 45 tickets, after which ticket sales are split 50/50 between company and venue.

If you are interested in hosting this amazing, emotional and hard hitting true life production then please contact Ollie Ward at oliver.ward@regents-tc.ac.uk or 01684 588982 for more details and to secure your tour date.
