The Gifts of the Angels

The Gifts of the Angels was a Coral Arts project – a large, cross arts, site specific performance at Dorchester Abbey in 1997. It involved many different artists and organisations. Jenny Lewis led the writing group who devised the play and wrote the script, poetry and lyrics.

The idea of the project was to explore the coming of Christianity to Oxfordshire in the 8th century AD.

The puppet (below) was designed by Sophie Layton who also directed the project.
