On Friday 10th April 2020 the Passion of Jesus is coming to Hamilton, this 90 minute performance is produced by agreement and with the permission of Wintershall free of charge for everyone.
This will be Hamilton’s fourth Passion Play and an amazing opportunity to see the Easter story take to the streets. The play will be performed at the bottom cross, Castle Street (near Asda) with the support of Church of Scotland GoForIt funding.
Drama Kirk is a Fresh Expression of Church, which brings the gospel to life through drama. Seeing things portrayed and being a part of a dramatization of scripture takes us a stage beyond bible readings: our understanding is deepened and our emotional journey heightened. The company is led by husband and wife team Ross and Liz Blackman. Ross is now a parish minister but was previously a time served joiner and so manages the technical aspects of productions. Liz is a professional actor turned minister’s wife, who produces and directs.
The majority of our wonderful community company is drawn from our local churches, with cast members ranging in age from 3 to 83. Some come with a great deal of experience of drama, others with none – all come willing to take the gospel message into the heart of their local community. Drama Kirk is looking forward to the opportunity to work with the experienced team at Wintershall to improve the quality of what they produce and welcome learning from the experts. The same play, performed at the same time throughout the country? That will indeed be One Good Friday!
Drama Kirk is part of Hamilton Old Parish Church
