Tickets are now on sale for The Nottingham Passion!
This is a dynamic, fresh and powerful dramatic telling of the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus and is an exciting and major initiative for St. Mary’s.
The production will follow the parts of the Bible that tell of Jesus’ final days. Performances of these events is a long-established tradition in the lead up to Easter in the UK. This new production follows in that tradition and will use words, music, action and the stunning architecture of St. Mary’s to tell the events of that fateful week.
We have a diverse cast from across the city – including Nottingham’s own Robin Hood – Ezekial Bone – playing the role of Judas Iscariot. Ezekial, real name Ade, is known to many across the city for his multi-award winning Robin Hood Town Tour.
Playing the role of Jesus is Simon Carter; a writer/performer in Calverton who says:
“It’s a privilege to be taking part in the Nottingham Passion and to get the chance to play this role,’ said Simon. ‘I’ll do my very best to try to show people something of who Jesus was and is and why the events of passion week were so awesome and extraordinary.
This has the potential to be a genuinely powerful piece of live theatre and for audience members, of any faith and none, to engage with this story in a fresh and innovative way.”
The production is based on the hugely popular Newark Passion performed in 2011 and then presented at Southwell Minster in 2012. Subsequent performances have been staged in Cambridge and Hucknall, all to sell out audiences.
With an epic soundtrack and set against the stunning backdrop of St. Mary’s in the Lace Market, ‘The Nottingham Passion’ may very well make your Easter.
Performances: 31st March, 1st April @ 7.30pm.
