HIMSELF, was premiered at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton, starring Timothy West, Dermot Crowley & Sharon Small.
One of the last of a dying breed, Christie Cameron has spent a lifetime touring the counties of Ireland as an actor-manager in the time honoured tradition. When Christie sets off on a short lecture tour of American Universities in the company of his wife Meg, he has no idea he is about to be offered the role of a lifetime as the figurehead of a mysterious Christian movement.
Christie finds fame and fortune in America, but over time, as the movement gathers pace, the ministry’s agenda begins to look decidedly sinister. Against the backdrop of religious faith and devotion tainted by media exploitation and financial gain, Christie is forced to question the purpose of his own life and values, and of those whose lives are inexorably linked with his own.
