York's historic Guilds present a record of the 2002 Mystery Plays, performed on waggons on the streets of the city.
Ten of the Guilds' Plays were staged on two Sundays in July, at five
of the traditional locations (or "stations"). The seven Companies
and Guilds of York were joined by local churches, drama groups and schools.
This website presents a summary of each of the plays, and images from
Background information on the York Cycle of Mystery
Plays and on York's Guilds is also included.
The Guilds of York would like to acknowledge the work of the many individuals
and organisations involved in this memorable production. We look forward
to combining our efforts again in the future.
Following the success of the productions in 2002 and 2006, the Guilds presented another selection from the plays during the summer of 2010. See www.yorkmysteryplays.co.uk for more information.
