Passion and Performance

There are free performances of Passion Plays all across the UK each Easter.

Watching a Passion Play can be very inspiring:

  • Seeing the Gospel brought to life on the streets
  • Encountering Jesus again and experiencing the Easter story
  • Watching churches of all denominations work together to present free performances
  • Hearing the stories of people impacted by the event
  • Local councils supporting more free performances
  • Marginalised communities and people invited into the cast and crew
  • Professional and amateur actors working together
  • Community collaboration and creativity
