Augustine: Sinner to Saint
A play which brings the story of St Augustine’s conversion from a life of debauchery to sainthood is heading for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year. Oggie! Oggie! Oggie! debuted at this year’s Lentfest and won rave reviews from audience members. Now the play will take its place at the world’s largest theatre festival with a tour of regional venues planned during the summer and subsequent touring planned, including performances for Secondary Schools.
The Archdiocese of Glasgow Arts Project production is going to the Edinburgh Fringe (C Venues Aurora) from 23rd-27th August. Tickets will soon be bookable at www.CtheArts.com
Oggie! Oggie! Oggie! is a modern, funny and moving, energetic twist on the Confessions of Saint Augustine, charting his dramatic conversion from a life of hedonism to become one of the most inspirational figures in Christian history. Written and performed by Stephen Callaghan.
Perhaps best-known for quotes such as “Lord, make me chaste…but not yet” and “Our hearts are restless until they rest in God”, the Confessions of Saint Augustine is considered both a literary and spiritual classic.
Glasgow playwright and performer, Stephen Callaghan (www.stephencallaghan.com) returns with this modern, punchy adaptation of the classic work, drawing a contemporary parallel without compromising the integrity of the original story of the sinner-turned-saint. Infused with his signature brand of Glasgow humour, the play follows the success of his previous Fringe productions, “The Margaret Sinclair Story” (2016) and his solo show, “The Pew With a View” (2018).
