York Mystery Plays community project

"At times you feel like you're looking at a huge film set with masses of people on stage, all pulling in the same direction, creating big pictures," says director Paul Burbridge about a new production of the 14th century York Mystery Plays.

The project includes coordinating two casts of 250 amateur performers, local propmakers and costumers for the six-hour-long production. The York Mystery Plays tell stories from the Bible. This production stars Ferdidnand Kingsley (son of Ben) as God and Jesus.
