A far-reaching, comic portrait of the effects of hypocrisy and corporate greed on the values of late-twentieth-century England.

Deep in the English countryside, Ruth Hartstone has reluctantly decided to sell the family estate to an American religious outfit with plans to turn it into a Christian leisure and satellite broadcasting complex. 

Doug Lucie's play Grace was first staged at Hampstead Theatre, London, in 1993.

Press Quotes

'Grace is nothing less than a Cherry Orchard for our times... an investigation not only into the price at which Britain is currently being sold but also into the cost'

Sheridan Morley

'A first-rate comedy. A thunderingly good play'


'Captures the smug sanctimony and robotic cheerfulness of those who have turned religion into big business'
