York Minster Catherdral. Only the second time in their 700-year history the Mystery Plays were presented in the Cathedral. The medieval Minster’s Nave was transformed into a 1,000 seater auditorium for the production.
In keeping with tradition, hundreds of community performers worked with one professional actor, supported by an army of backstage volunteers to create a unique spectacle, which celebrated the city’s cultural heritage.
