About York Mystery Plays
Written by Mike Kenny
Directed by Damian Cruden & Paul Burbridge
Designed by Sean Cavanagh
with costumes designed by Anna Gooch
Patrons: HRH The Duke of York, Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu,
Dame Judi Dench & Harry Gration

The medieval cycle of York Mystery Plays has been performed by the people of York across the centuries and is a world-famous part of the city’s cultural heritage.
From Creation to the Last Judgment, these plays form one of the greatest stories ever told. In summer 2012 the story of God, of man and woman and of the cosmic struggle between good and evil will be presented on an epic scale against the magnificent backdrop of St Mary’s Abbey.
For the first time since 1988 in a production of this size, the Plays will return to York Museum Gardens, where a 1400-seat covered theatre will be constructed within the ancient walls of the Abbey.
Taking place in the same year that London hosts the Olympic Games, this international event will also be a major part of York’s 800th anniversary celebrations of the granting of its Civic Charter. An exciting festival atmosphere will be created both in the Gardens and throughout the city, with entertaining fringe events and a celebration of the best of Yorkshire food and drink.
Presented by York Theatre Royal, Riding Lights Theatre Company and York Museums Trust and supported by City of York Council, this bold, accessible adaptation of the Plays is by York writer Mike Kenny, who also adapted E. Nesbitt’s The Railway Children for the Olivier award-winning production by York Theatre Royal and the National Railway Museum.
Over 1,000 people from the local community have joined with a team of professional artists and technicians to create this spectacular production.
