The Bangor Passion Play portrays the trial, passion and crucifixion of Jesus.
Good Friday commemorates the day nearly 2000 years ago when Jesus Christ was tried and executed. Christians believe that Jesus then rose from death on Easter Sunday – the miraculous event that led directly to the founding of the Christian Church. To mark this anniversary, actors from eight Christian Churches in Central Bangor will again portray the trial, passion and crucifixion of Jesus in the Bangor Passion Play.
