Involving more than a hundred community actors alongside Saltmine Theatre Company, multiple choirs and dynamic live music, Birmingham Passion Play 2019 is by the city, for the city.
This unique contemporary retelling of the extraordinary Easter story will process from Grand Central to St Philip’s Cathedral, on 16th,17th and 18th April 2019. With participation and collaboration we want to recruit volunteers for the community cast, choir, musicians and stewards along with sponsorship from churches, organisations and businesses. Everyone is welcome.
The visceral, dynamic, moving and celebratory production will start inside Grand Central, move outside New Street to a concourse area then process along New Street up to Victoria Square before coming to its climax in the grounds of Birmingham Cathedral (Crucifixion) then inside the Cathedral itself for the upper room and resurrection of Jesus.
