Some scenes from the 2014 York Mystery Plays

Here are some photos of last Sunday’s York Mystery Plays (13 July 2014). They include:

1. The procession of The Shepherds’ Play, by the The Guild of Scriveners, showing the pageant wagon and a team of angels (processing up Minister Yard towards Deangate)
2. Christ before Annas and Caiaphas, by The Company of Cordwainers in partnership with York Settlement Community Players (College Green)
3. The Crucifixion and The Death of Christ combined as one play, by The Company of Butchers in partnership with Parish Church of St Chad on the Knavesmire (College Green)

  1. Those are the Lincoln Waites processing The Shepherds’ Play, one of the seven bands of waits involved in this year’s performances, continuing the tradition of performance associated with religious drama recorded in many REED volumes.
