For their 2014 season entitled ‘Arms and the Man’, Shakespeare’s Globe is staging productions that take on two millennia of conflict. That’s no small undertaking, but then the historic London venue has long been known for its ambitious stagings.

New plays, classic plays, revisited plays - there’s plenty on offer as part of the season and the next show to arrive is the world premiere of Holy Warriors, a new piece by playwright David Eldridge. Excitingly, we are able to offer one lucky reader a pair of top-price tickets to see this production when it opens this month.

Holy Warriors is a tale of holy war, fraught diplomacy and revenge in the struggle for Jerusalem. James Dacre directs this play, featuring the crusades of Richard the Lionheart alongside the brutal conflicts in the Middle East during our own lifetimes.

David Eldridge is the writer of the acclaimed stage adaptation of Festen. His play In Basildon at the Royal Court was voted number one theatre pick of 2012 by The Guardian’s critics and art writers.
