Passion returns in 2016 after a sell-out run in 2014 & 2015! This immersive, promenade production reimagines one of the world’s most important stories, the life and death of Jesus Christ, as a gripping contemporary drama, leading its audience through a variety of different spaces in Birmingham city centre; in each new location, a new scene unfolds.
‘Gripping and heartbreaking’ **** Birmingham Mail

‘For sheer ambition, creativity and commitment this young company cannot be faulted’ ***** What’s On Stage
Also this year, for the first time, we are going to host 2 performances signed for the deaf which is very exciting!
The Old Joint Stock Theatre has a large scale promenade production of the Passion running from 27th March – 3rd April 2015. It was first performed in 2014, with nine performances over seven days. The run sold out far in advance and the promenade production led the audience across secret rooms in our theatre and bar venue, neighbouring businesses and St Philips Cathedral.
This year we have just started our two week run of Passion 2015, and it’s even bigger and better than last years! With a fifty strong cast and crew, we lead the audience over nine venues across Birmingham city centre, and for some scenes ride on an open top tour bus!
