It may seem like the most daunting part of starting your Passion Play, but the best place to start is your own reading of the four Gospels themselves.  The best scripts come from your understanding and passion for what you are reading, and this will come through in your play. As you read through the Gospels and imagine what it would have been like to be there, or imagine what it would be like on a stage, the first stage of the writing process will have already begun…

James Burke-Dunsmore,  currently artistic director, writer and director of The Passion of Christ in Brighton, has been involved in Passion Plays in Wintershall, Leicester, Guildford, Perth (Western Australia) and Trafalger Square. Please contact him directly for free advice and initial conversations about writing your script, or to arrange writing and acting workshops at rates suitable to you.
