Directed by Robert Crighton
Sat 7th to Sat 14th July 2012
Before Shakespeare there were the mysteries, the first great dramas ever produced in English. The original mystery plays were based on stories from the Bible, telling the story of the world fron the Creation through to Doomsday and written to be performed on city streets over the course of a whole day. This specially prepared version tells of the life of Christ focusing on his betrayal and what follows. A powerful story told for all peoples, involving storytelling, music, drama and a community company.
