Temple, which receives its world premiere at the Donmar Warehouse is directed by Howard Davies, with design by Tim Hatley, lighting by Mark Henderson, sound by Mike Walker and composed by Stephen Warbeck.

On 15 October 2011, Occupy London makes camp outside St Paul’s Cathedral. On 21 October, a building that remained open through the Blitz, terrorist threats and floods closes its doors. On 28
October, the City of London initiates legal action to begin removing Occupy London from outside the Cathedral. Steve Waters’ new play is a fictional account of these events, set in the heart of a very British crisis – a crisis of conscience, a crisis of authority and a crisis of faith.
