Although the original format is stage play: Refuge has been adapted into an audio drama to celebrate the opening of the York Mystery Plays 2012. This distinctive and moving play, written by Bill Hodson, is downloadable in audio format as of August 2nd – the play will come with a set of instructions about how to listen to the piece for a new and alternative theatrical experience.
This has been an exciting medium to explore, a theatre experience that audiences can take away with them – engaging in any location and at any time.
Find a place in the Yorkshire Museum Gardens where you can observe a group of people and listen to the audio on the video above, following on-screen instructions during the production.
