Wonderful… just fantastic.
— Elaine Paige

Postcards from God is a colourful musical portrait of ‘art nun’ Sister Wendy Beckett, who became a household name in the nineties with her televised tours of the UK, Europe and America, spreading her homespun philosophy that ‘art is for everyone’. But as the reluctant pop icon swapped her humble mobile home for the caravan of fame, her simple life would never be the same again.

Written by Marcus Reeves, an early version was developed at BAC, Postcards from God with some performances off West End at Jermyn Street Theatre (2007) and Hackney Empire Studio (2008), with songs from the 2010 Concept Cast Recording receiving airplay from Elaine Paige and Graham Norton on BBC Radio Two. The show has since been significantly reworked, with a revised script and new musical arrangements by Michael Roulston, and will return for a short run at South London Theatre in November 2018.
