Year Eleven Pupil Performs in Worcester Passion Play
We are delighted to share the news that Year Eleven Drama Scholar, Hope Bradley, performed in the Worcester Passion Play this Easter alongside her father who played the part of a Roman Soldier.
The Worcester Passion Play returned to Cathedral Square on Good Friday to once again bring a delightfully divine spectacle to the city. The Passion Play is a dramatic presentation depicting the Passion of Jesus Christ: his trial, suffering and death, and resurrection. They are performed in many cities around the UK and around the world and bring the true meaning of Easter to our streets.
An audience of hundreds marvelled at the remarkable production in the Worcester sunshine, with the cast kitted out in stunning authentic attire from the era. This year’s cast included more Roman soldiers than previous productions, all armed with shields and spears. The production is supported by a number of local churches, businesses, trusts and individuals.
This was the second time Hope has performed in the Passion Play playing the part of Nathaniel, one of Jesus’ disciples, last year. She explained that she auditioned for the performance in 2020 but it was cancelled due to the Pandemic, and then again in 2021. Finally, in 2022, Hope got the chance to perform one of the greatest stories of all and now in 2023 she was able to do it all again!
