Exploring: Christ's Burial

Episode 206,   Apr 15, 2022, 07:14 AM

A read through and discussion of the play of Christ's Burial

A read through and discussion of Christ's Burial, as seen on our YouTube exploring sessions in another of our occasional cross over episodes.

The play comes from the Digby manuscript - a collection of late medieval/early Tudor drama, this text dating to the first quarter of the 16th century, around 1520ish. This play is supposed to be played in the afternoon of Good Friday, hence our dropping it here. It is followed by Christ's Resurrection for Easter Day. Which will also drop this weekend.
CW: It is an exposition on grief, so this packs a punch, and also features some early modern religious intolerance.
Featuring the reading talents of Liza Graham as John Evangelist; Sarah Blake as Mary 3 / Virgin Mary; Stephen Longstaffe as Joseph of Aramathia; Sascha Cooper as Magdalen (or in the text Maudlyn); Alan Scott as Nicodemus; and Georgia Andrews as Mary or Maries when in unison.
The host was Robert Crighton.
