The sold out 'Passion Play' finally took place during Holy Week.
Here is some feedback from Mary Craddock on her experience of being involved in the Passion Play.
"The Easter story often feels sanitised. The details of what happened are given in the Bible and there is much music, the Bach. Passions for example, that I find extremely moving, but nothing prepared me for the cruel and visceral nature of the whole story when I was actually living it by having a part in the Passion Play.
To think that a man was willing to go through such an experience for me, even though he knew it had to happen, is overwhelming. And I would like to add that the Resurrection scene where Jesus came to us as a brother into our ordinary everyday life affected me powerfully. It was a privilege to be part of the Passion Play and bring the real story to people.
Thanks to Anne and Darren for giving me this opportunity."
