Exploring the Chester Mystery Plays is a series of live streamed events where the Chester plays are taken apart with readers and commentary. Rough round the edges, edited versions of these events are now being posted online. This post covers the end of play 5, where Balaam tells King Balak how to get the Israelites to curse themselves - next post will cover play 6 - the Nativity.
