Sunday 16 December: Mystery play reading
12:15  Croydon Meeting House   As a Christmas celebration we will have an informal reading of some medieval mystery plays. We can all join in - no acting experience necessary!
Paper scripts will be provided but if you are really keen, the scripts can be read online or transferred to your Kindle or other hand-held device. See: Requests made here for specific rôles will be considered.
In part, this picture gives a good idea of how the plays were originally presented: a medieval building in the background (St William’s College, York), the officers of the Company of Cordwainers in their robes and a cart providing the stage. But a female Jesus being tempted by a female Satan is not exactly medieval. And as to the costume, incredibly the programme gives a credit for "Costume" for this play. For what - doing some rips in some tight jeans?
