Southwark Mysteries Community Cast Introductory Workshops

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Inspired by the medieval mystery plays, this epic play by John Constable is rooted in the history of Bankside. Mixing Bible stories with local folklore and contemporary humour, it presents a dramatic vision of Christ as the friend of the outcast.

The Southwark Mysteries has been performed in full only once before, to a capacity audience in Shakespeare's Globe and Southwark Cathedral ten years ago.

A decade on, the April 2010 production features professional actors working with an adult community cast and three local schools. There will also be celebrity cameo appearances.

Be part of The Southwark Mysteries community cast – or help with costumes or crewing.

To be in the cast, you have to be at one or both of this week's workshops.

To book your place email: [email protected]

All cast will rehearse one (or two) evenings per week for 7 weeks leading up to the shows.

Priority will be given to people who live, work, study, or have a particular interest in Southwark, AND can commit to the 7 weeks.
