Trafalgar Square Passion of Jesus to be performed in towns and cities across UK

Apr 18, 2019 by

from ICN:

For the past nine years, the Wintershall Cast have performed The Passion of Jesus in Trafalgar Square on Good Friday.

The story commemorating the day Jesus is believed to have been arrested, tried and crucified by the Romans, two days before miraculously rising from the dead on Easter Sunday, is brought to life in the open air and has become a much-anticipated Easter fixture. This year’s The Passion of Jesus will be performed this Good Friday 19 April in Trafalgar Square at midday and 3.15pm.

On Good Friday, 10 April 2020, they will not only be performing the Passion Play in London but the play will also be performed in several UK towns and cities on the same day – including performances in Bath, Liverpool, Horsham, Bishop Auckland, Hamilton and Worcester. It has long been Wintershall’s dream to bring their Passion Play nationwide and to share their awe-inspiring full-scale re-enactment of the Passion with communities throughout the UK. The play will be performed for free by local casts in all locations.

Wintershall have licensed their Passion Script, written by Peter Hutley, and Production Manual to each new city and town taking part and each new production is performed by and produced by their local communities. This is a wonderful unifying project bringing communities together and telling the real story of Easter to a whole new audience.
