      The York Crucifixion is a short play which is part of the only complete surviving medieval mystery cycle of plays. These plays were typically staged in public for entire communities, often on pageant carts in the centre of town. In this play, four soldiers arrive on the stage. They talk about their job for the day, which is crucifying a prisoner. They joke, they argue about who has to do the most work, they get the job done. The prisoner forgives them; they laugh. By the end of the play, they argue over who gets the prisoner’s cloak, and they go home, leaving Jesus crucified on stage. This modern translation is set in an office building, and I’m looking for a dedicated producer  with a strong stomach to help resurrect this ancient, highly realistic and bloody play.
      Please email your application to me at nl418@cam.ac.uk by November 30th, and tell me:
    • What experience do you have producing plays? If you don’t have any, no worries! Just let me know why you think producing will be for you.
    • What will be your priorities whilst working on a very violent and graphic production?
    • How will you market a play that is literally a crucifixion live on stage?
    • Why would you like to be involved in this production?
    • Do you have any questions for me?
      I’m so excited to be directing a play that has been just a pipe dream for such a long time. I’m really looking forward to putting the passion in Passion Play!
