Catherine Tate is God!

She may have briefly entered a high state of consciousness when Donna’s mind was melded with that of the Tenth Doctor but, for her latest role, she’s gone one higher: God him/her/itself.

Catherine Tate will be taking on the role of the Almighty as part of the soon to be opened Bush Theatre’s mammoth theatrical event to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the King James Bible entitled: Sixty Six Books reports BBC News.

Godblog will see Catherine Tate arrive on stage in high heels and a pale suit- accompanied by an angel with a laptop furiously tweeting live from Genesis itself – capturing the every utterance of our Holy Ginger One, including;

“In the beginning, there were no social networking sites…”

The one-act play, written by Jeanette Winterson, is part of a cycle of plays involving 130 actors and 23 directors which opens this week with a 24 hour performance at the relocated Bush Theatre.

The Bush’s artistic director Josie Rourke, who also directed Catherine and David Tennant in her 1980’s set adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, spoke of Tate’s ‘bold’ and ‘funny’ take on the divine creator:

“Catherine came naturally to mind for that. She just walks out onto a stage and recruits everybody into what she’s doing – and that’s absolutely what it needs”

While it may look at the underlying social and historical significance of the books, the works themselves promise to reach out to the secular audience as well with actors performing DJ sets in a custom-built nightclub above the theatre, with audiences encouraged to get down to some holy-rolling in the twenty-minute intervals between performances taking place during the 24 hour marathon.

Maybe God is a DJ after all?

Sixty Six Books runs at the Bush Theatre, London until 29th October with 24 hour performances taking place on the 18th and 28th October. There will also be a 12 hour overnight performance at Westminster Abbey on 21st October.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
