This performance started with an early morning service at All Saints church then a walk in procession to Market Place for the start of the Passion Play.
Anna Adams from the Rough Sketch Theatre Company directed the Wokingham Passion play. She told The Wokingham Paper that she hoped shoppers will be surprised with this new production. “This year the actors will not be in traditional robes but they will wear contemporary clothes,” she explained.
“We have a stage in Market Place but it might be difficult to tell shoppers and actors apart. The theme is very much about Jesus and the relationships he had with people who were regarded as outcasts and rejected by society. However, Jesus reached out to them and healed them.”
