The Cardinals by Stan’s Cafe – Trailer2013.


This is a trailer of the Stan's Cafe show The Cardinals.

Three Cardinals in crimson robes are on a mission of evangelism. They are on tour with a puppet show they have made that sets out their abbreviated and extrapolated reading of the bible.

The reading is abbreviated as it stages only a relatively small number of scenes key to their message of redemption; it is extrapolated as its reading of the book of Acts and Revelation include elements of contemporary history. Our theatre show is slightly bigger than the Cardinal's own puppet show our real audience (as opposed to their fictional audience), can see what is happening in the wings, how they collaborate and argue, how they are both aided by and in conflict with their young female Muslim stage manager.

The show can next be seen in Edinburgh at Greyfriars Kirk 19th – 23rd August at 12 noon. Please note there is no show on Thursday 22nd. Details and tickets via
