This Passion Play is not being performed in 2017. Please visit again for further information.
Soul by the Sea’s annual passion play was last performed in Brighton in 2014.
The Passion of Christ is a moving portrayal, faithful to the original scripture, of the days leading up to Jesus’ arrest, death and resurrection. The cast are volunteers from the local community that comprise a mixture of backgrounds, denomin
ations and nationalities, and they often have no previous acting experience.
Creative Director is James Burke-Dunsmore, who has played the role of Jesus in Brighton’s Passion of Christ production for the last 2 years, and on stage and screen nationally and internationally for over 14 years. In 2013, James has handed over the challenging role to a talented young professional actor, chosen from dozens of gifted applicants. This year’s production wil
l highlight Jesus’ role as a teacher and show the remarkable methods he used to guide his unlikely students in preparation for their ultimate commission to bring the world into the light.
The Passion of Christ is part of the charity The Passion Trust. To put on this FREE production in our Brighton community, we rely on kind donations from generous sponsors, and a proportion of funds we raise are donated to Off The Fence, a c
harity committed to making a difference in the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
