Blockley Millennium Mystery Plays

cropped-bmp-wp-header1JesusFrom 1999 -2005 Chris Jury was the Artistic Director of the Blockley Millennium Mystery Plays, which celebrated the turn of the millennium by presenting a production of the New Testament section of the Coventry Mystery Plays in the North Cotswold village of Blockley.

With a budget of £20,000, the cast and crew of over fifty local amateurs laboured for over a year, raising finance, making costumes, building sets and transforming the local parish church into a theatre in order to present the plays for just three performances.

In 2004 the community repeated the trick with an outdoor performance of the Old Testament involving a cast & crew of 70 and a budget of £30,000.
