Exploring play 15 of the Chester Mystery Cycle

Exploring the Chester Mystery Cycle - Play 15

From our Exploring workshop, where we read through the text of this play for future use towards an audio/stage show. This is the Bakers play of the Last Supper and Betrayal. Some ear splitting action.

The Beyond Shakespeare Irregulars this episode were Richard Fawcett as Jesus, with Liz Cole, Mark Scanlon, Mark Saberton and Alan Scott as everyone else – with host, Robert Crighton.

There are more versions of the Chester plays than you can shake a stick at - (actually there are eight) - so any text you use to follow will probably be a bit different to ours (for the sticklers, our base text was H, except for play five, where it was just easier to go for a group text (D-or Hm, A, R, B) composite - though some readings may have been borrowed from all). However, you don't necessarily need to worry about such things, so here's a nice friendly modern spelling version we found online. http://groups.chass.utoronto.ca/plspls/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/index.html
