Part situation comedy, part allegory, Prayer Room moves from nervy humour to climactic violence.
Set in the bland, non-denominational prayer room of a present-day British University, Jews, Christians and Muslim students all have specific days when they can use it.
However, tension grows when the Jews demand more time, and the Muslims find themselves deprived of their regular Friday slot and the Christians are trying to take a back-seat and let the other two fight it out.
Prayer Room was commissioned by the Edinburgh International Festival and premiered at the Royal Lyceum Theatre in a co-production with the Birmingham Repertory Theatre in August 2005.
