The Mystery Plays return to the Cityon 3 & 4 July this year in Residents’ Gardens, Dean’s Park., York. This is a joint, outdoor, production between the Trust, York Festival Trust and York Minster. It will be staged on two pageant wagons.
There are 3 performances on each date – 11am, 2pm and 4pm. Each lasts about 1 hour.
We are bringing an outdoor production from York’s Mystery Play cycle to the city on 3 and 4 July 2021. Philip Parr is directing a cast of community actors and musicians in an hour-long production, which looks at the experience of people after the crucifixion of Christ. The production moves us from an experience of terror and suffering to one of hope of a brighter future and reflects the feelings of a society affected by the pandemic. Hope is the key theme.
The play takes place in the Residents’ Gardens adjoining Dean’s Park at York Minster and is the result of a three-way partnership between York Festival Trust, York Minster and York Mystery Plays Supporters Trust.
