Louth court room passion play

WORK is progressing on staging a passion play in Louth over Easter, set in a court room.

Churches Together in Louth and District are performing The Vigil on Good Friday and Holy Saturday, April 6 and 7, at Monks’ Dyke Technology College.

This fictional courtroom drama centres on the claim that Jesus was not raised from the dead but that his body was stolen. It is directed by Peter Maddison and Produced by The Rev Langley Mackrell-Hey.

The Rev Mackrell-Hey, Chair of Churches Together, said: “The response to staging a passion play has been fantastic. It has been encouraging to see so many people become involved and to be supported by Monk’s Dyke Technology College and our box offices in the town.”

Tickets are on sale at Wrights newsagents in Eastgate, Eve & Ranshaw in the Market Place and Off The Beaten Tracks independent record shop in Aswell Street.
