Mystery plays

On Saturday 29th May, a small group of 5 joined a huge throng  to watch a cast of 200 perform a Mystery Play at York Minster.

Such plays have entertained the people of York since the 1300s enacting scenes from the creation of heaven & earth to the last judgement.

The story of good versus evil, of life & death & of love, betrayal, loss & hope.

After 4 hours our little group emerged somewhat stiffly but enlightened into brilliant sunshine having enjoyed a spectacular performance.
