Abingdon Passion Play
Join us for Abingdon’s Passion Play – an exciting, dramatic presentation depicting the events of the last week in the life of Jesus Christ.This free, open-air production which is to be staged in the Market Place in front of the Museum is an extraordinary community enterprise combining drama, music and dance which will draw in onlookers as they watch the events progress.
In true Passion Play tradition, watch Jesus’ triumphal entry on a donkey, his arrest and false trial, and finally his crucifixion and the resurrection. The audience can follow the action as the story unfolds.
There will be two peformances – at 11.00 and 15.00. We advise that you arrive about half an hour before the performance starts and wear warm clothing and we request that umbrellas are not used . Children (and adults if they like!) can feel part of the experience by dressing as a biblical character and bringing a ‘palm leaf’ to wave – for costume ideas and palm templates, please check out our website. Running time is approximately 1 1/2 hours
Some scenes may be unsuitable for small children
