The Edinburgh Easter play is an open air promenade production with the audience split into groups to move around the gardens. It includes a series of monologues and scenes examining characters who are in the margins of the Bible Stories. The play is free and people can just turn up!
2014 will once again see The Easter Play Trust moving with the times and working on a modern version of the Gospel Story. After the hugely successful Glasgow Passion the Trust has commissioned top Scottish playwright, Rob Drummond to write a new version for Edinburgh. Free entrance and start at Ross Bandstand.
Inspired by a monologue for Judas written by an inmate in Angola Prison, Louisiana, Producer-Director Suzanne Lofthus felt it would be interesting to look at the character of Jesus through the eyes of other biblical characters . “CrossWords” is a series of monologues ranging from the demon possessed man to Mary speaking to her 12 year old son – all sharing their experience of Christ.
“CrossWords” will surprise and challenge the audience, it will once again be an open air promenade production set in Princes Street Gardens.
We believe the performance will help you experience Jesus in a very welcoming and relevant production.
“CrossWords” will be performed Easter Saturday West Princes Street Gardens 2:00pm. Free production and not ticketed. Please be aware of weather conditions. No seating provided.
