Following a successful sold out run at the Off West End White Bear, the play about Ignatius of Loyola and the Jesuits transferred to the Main House of the Pleasance Theatre London to rapturous audiences. The play is now published.

"Historically accurate, comic and thought-provoking while still incredibly relevant."
★★★★ Plays To See
"Lovely moments of religious poetry and pragmatic comedy...given the current activity in Rome, this is a particularly pertinent time for this story of humility"
★★★★ The Stage
"Brilliantly written and acted...a great evening of thoughtful and dynamic theatre"
Mark Lawson (Writer, Arts Broadcaster and Journalist)
"The intelligence of the production, and especially the vitality and versatility of the performances make for a moving, stimulating and enjoyable experience. The structure and dynamism of the play, the art with which Jonathan Moore makes Ignatius accessible to us, capturing much of the drama of the Spiritual Exercises themselves, would also make ‘Iñigo’ an excellent discovery for schools and colleges. I hope that is something we may look forward to."

"Condensing a life so full of internal struggle, complex relationships and momentous incident into two hours of drama is an astonishing achievement. Jonathan Moore has honed the story with skill and passion and also a good measure of humour."
Jane Hellings, Jesuits and Friends
