The Mysteries: The Nativity

The Mysteries: The Nativity

Thu 21 - Sat 23 November 2019

Autumn 2019LIPA

Part 1 By Tony Harrison

Lucifer and the Angel Gabriel, Adam and Eve, Cain, Abel, Noah and - of course - God. All gather for the beginning of the world, to tell the story of Mary and Joseph, of good and evil.

The Nativity is the first part of Tony Harrison’s legendary mystery plays, using historical narratives to cast an allegorical perspective on current events and cultural conflicts.

James Baker (Parade; Jerry Springer: The Opera) directs this genderblind total-theatre production, incorporating live musicians, songs and audience members in a riotous and relevant retelling of a universal tale.

The Mysteries can be experienced individually or as a chronological trilogy.

Performed by third-year Acting students. Suitable for ages 12+.

This amateur production is presented in arrangement with Faber & Faber Ltd, publishers of The Mysteries by Tony Harrison.

Suitable for ages 12yrs +

Please note that The Mysteries: The Nativity will take place at LIPA, not Unity Theatre.
