In 2018 a Passion Play was included in the Gloucester Mystery Plays. This can be seen below – filmed at Gloucester Cathedral. Translated and dramatized by Rachel Murrey, it was directed by Sheila Mander. It had an original score by Robert Perry and was produced by Phil McCormick GAC.

In 2013, the Easter Cycle took place on Thursday 21 and Friday 22 March, and Wednesday 3 to Friday 5 April. Cathedral-goers saw fresh versions of The Life of Christ, The Passion, The Harrowing of Hell and The Last Judgement. These were all encompassed in the two-and-a-half hour performances.

The Gloucester Mystery Plays Festival Weekend, took place on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 June 2013. The streets of Gloucester filled with colour and movement as the Company of Friends performed the full run of plays in the traditional form – from a pageant wagon – around the city centre.
