The Edinburgh Passion Play will take place on place on Easter Saturday, April 15th 2017, at 2pm, in Princes Street Gardens West in the centre of Edinburgh. The
The Edinburgh Easter Play will take
is free and open to all. This year, for the first time since 2010, we will be staging a large-scale traditional Passion Play, but you can expect a few surprises – our take on the Easter story has a distinctly Scottish flavour.
Past plays in Edinburgh:
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.
