Passion Plays and Biblical Literacy


Passion Plays help address the lack of biblical literacy in the UK.

According to a study undertaken by YouGov on behalf of the Bible Society in 2014, biblical literacy is very low among people of all ages, particularly younger people.

Did you know 43% of children who took part indicated that they have never seen, read or heard the story of the Crucifixion?

Did you know over 60% of children indicated they had not read, seen or heard the Feeding of the 5,000 (61%) or the Good Samaritan (61%)?

Free performances of Passion Plays are fresh ways to educate and inform as they present the Easter story in lively and engaging ways to everyone free of charge.
