Nuts & Bolts

The first performances of the York Mystery plays are only a couple of weeks away now. I am part of the photography group that has been following the production from day 1. My first shoot was of auditions back in November.

It has been a privilege to be allowed such incredible access to this massive event and so interesting to see how all the all the components, from cast to costume to props to stage, have been drawn together.

The two professional actors are fully engaged with the rehearsals now and this was my first session watching Ferdinand Kingsley, who will be playing the duel role of Christ & God.

Here fellow pro Graeme Hawley, who plays Satan, watches during the crucifixion.

The Mystery Plays promise to a spectacular theatrical event and run from 2nd  to 27th August and further details can be found here
