Exploring play 18 of the Chester Mystery Cycle - The Resurrection

Exploring the Chester Mystery Cycle - Play 18 (The Resurrection)

From our Exploring workshop, where we read through the text of this play for future use towards an audio/stage show. We're into the home straight now, with the Resurrection play - guarding of the tomb goes bad for the knights, and the disciples get a surprise visitor.
The Beyond Shakespeare Irregulars this episode were Liz Cole, Richard Fawcett, Mark Scanlon, and Alan Scott – 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
