York Mystery Plays 2012
Last Friday I went with my dad to see an evening performance of the 'York Mystery Plays.' This is a York theatre tradition that has been around since the late 1300s and has been revived for a modern audience. The play took place amongst the gorgeous ruins of St Mary's abbey, the stage surrounded by theatre seating.
The scenes of the performance were well known Bible stories with a strong emphasis in the second half on the life of Jesus.
Effective costumes were threads of a 1950s style.
The music and the spectacle was lush and this was an even I will never forget. These sketches are a commemoration of the performance and a thankyou to the whole cast and production team of the 2012 mysteries.
I don't have anything more to say other than have a look at the York Mystery Plays website for a sense of the production in full:
I am an artist and a freelance illustator making drawings with detail and imagination.
I have created album art, storyboards, editorial illustrations and have exhibited solo work. Also I am part of the exiting art collective 'bestjoinedup' and am a member of 'West Yorkshire Print Workshop.'
