2002 Production

The 2002 production was based on a medieval script from one of the York Mystery Plays.  The production was staged on the streets of Devizes in traditional style middle eastern costume of the period.

Ther performance, through the town started with the betrayal and arrest of Jesus on the Small Green in glorious sunshine.  The cast followed by the audience processed through the streets to the sound of a single drum beat to reassemble outside Handle House where the trial and flogging of Jesus was staged.

The play continued with Jesus being marched through the centre of the town, down the Brittox to the Market Place where the crucifizion took place in front of a crowd of at least 2000 people.
