“York based Theatre Companies working collaboratively to create a unique community theatre experience; short plays written by local writers, performed by a company of local actors in spectacular surroundings”
Rebecca Stafford – Modern Mysteries Producer
The York Mystery Plays 2012 and Script Yorkshire York Branch created an initiative to support local writers, as they develop original scripts based on modern interpretations from the Mystery Plays Cycle.
Following a four month writer’s development programme, the six chosen scripts have been put into production. York based Theatre Companies are collaborating to bring the six short plays to Museum Gardens throughout August, as part of the York Mystery Plays 2012 pre-show entertainment.
Transported in to a haven hosted by masquerading angels: journey with them around the York Museum Gardens, encountering ‘Modern Mysteries’ along the way.
Watch new writing brought to life in extraordinary surroundings - before the company head off to perform at The Forest of Galtres Festival from the 24th-26th August.
