The Soul in the Machine

“We are more than bodies to be fed to a machine. We are made for more than work. We have souls, we have spirits and somewhere in this dead city there must be a place for those things” – George Williams

We are delighted to be hosting the production, The Soul in the Machine which tells the story of our founder George William and how YMCA began. It is in Coventry for one night only at The Albany Theatre on 12th May 2017. Tickets are on sale now.

The production is set in London, 1844 – Centre of Empire, crucible of the New Jerusalem. Her gutters run with effluent and blood and her skies are choked with the smoke of a hundred factories and foundries, but above the smoke, the stars still shine. George Williams is a country boy who comes to the city to find his place in the world and to make his mark. Appalled by the spirit-crushing rhythms of the Worker’s life he fights to spread the light of God, and create a place where the soul can be nurtured. Commissioned by YMCA, created by Saltmine Trust, The Soul in the Machine is a play for anyone who works for a living.
