Description Brink and the Wrestling School undertook a considerable and highly ambitious project with 'The Ecstatic Bible', Howard Barker's immense collage of fragments and resonances that encapsulate the scope and vision of his entire canon. This play is an alternative and contentious history of civilisation, a provocation to the Bible, a new genealogy of morality, of wanting, of fear, of possession, of love.
