What’s this play about?

 

The fall of man is the fifth play by the Coopers and looks to explain why sin and misery exists in today’s world. The play tells the story of Adam and Eve, the first humans to be on this world, and our ancestors, and their fall from God’s grace and expulsion from the garden of Eden through Satan’s influence. The story also lays the foundations for man’s salvation through his son Jesus Christ.

Guest Blog – On the Trail of the Mysteries by Eleanor Bloomfield

‘Have you come far?’ asked the volunteer ‘Mystery Maker’ in charge of selling programmes. Yes, I had come far, twelve thousand miles: from New Zealand to England, Auckland to York, I had come to see the York Mystery Plays staged in the Minster. York Minster in the Middle Ages was one of England’s great pilgrimage cathedrals; now, half a millennium later, I had come on my own personal pilgrimage to see the plays performed live after several years of studying them from the other side of the world.
