This Passion Play will not be performed this year. Please visit again for further information.
Soul by the Sea’s annual passion play was last performed in Brighton in 2014
The Passion of Christ is a moving portrayal, faithful to the original scripture, of the days leading up to Jesus’ arrest, death and resurrection. The cast are volunteers from the local community that comprise a mixture of backgrounds, denominations and nationalities, and they often have no previous acting experience.
Creative Director is James Burke-Dunsmore, who has played the role of Jesus in Brighton’s Passion of Christ production for the last 2 years, and on stage and screen nationally and internationally for over 14 years. In 2013, James has handed over the challenging role to a talented young professional actor, chosen from dozens of gifted applicants. This year’s production highlighted Jesus’ role as a teacher and show the remarkable methods he used to guide his unlikely students in preparation for their ultimate commission to bring the world into the light.
