As part of this year’s LSE Literary Festival Fringe, Mark Lawson will be interviewing Jonathan Moore about his much admired play INIGO, which vividly brings Ignatius of Loyola and the founding Jesuits of the sixteenth century to life for a contemporary audience. Moore’s bold depiction of Loyola as a counter cultural radical explores timely questions about the role of art and faith, the world of the imagination and creativity, in the fight for change.
