Four clergymen seek to make sense of their mission while being torn in all directions by the Church of England. After a critically lauded debut in 1990 at London’s National Theatre, Racing Demon went on to earn universal acclaim. More than twenty years later, David Hare’s bold and moving revelations on gay ordination and the doctrine of the priesthood ring more resoundingly than ever.

An LA Theatre Works full-cast recording starring Jared Harris, Lesley Nichol, Rosie Fellner, Paul Fox, Jason Hughes, Martin Jarvis, Christopher Neame, Alan Shearman, Simon Templeman, Jane Wall, and Matthew Wolf. Directed by Rosalind Ayres. Recorded before an audience by LA Theatre Works.

Quotes & Awards

  • Racing Demon emerges as Hare’s compassionate study of the eternal battle between the individual conscience and the institution.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “The perfectly voiced British actors Martin Jarvis, OBE, and Jared Harris (Mad Men) lead an outstanding ensemble in giving a lively, theatrical feel to this solid adaptation. Audio drama is at its best when projecting aural intimacy and intensity. When these characters take on such hot-button issues as gay marriage, women in the priesthood, and abortion, the play seems as relevant as it did during the time it was written.”
