Passion Trust
Manchester Passion Plays

Our Project:

The Manchester Passion received much-appreciated funding from Westhill Endowment and was performed in the gardens of Manchester Cathedral on Saturday 8th April, 2017.

The play was directed in the tradition of the Medieval York Mystery Plays in a contemporary way making it relevant today. It was directed by Geoff Millard, who had previously delivered two passions in Bolton and many others.

Our chair, Canon Falak Sher who manages two parishes and four congregations in Manchester, was the overseer of the Manchester Passion play and all the activities. One woman commented on the Facebook: 

A very moving portrayal, particularly the sight of the three crosses in front of the Cathedral. There was a lady nearby who stood up crying as Jesus was raised onto the cross. Although I think she was vulnerable, it brought home how those who witnessed this event at the time, must have felt. There were lots of people there from various churches, but I hope that the Christian message of Easter reached others who may have forgotten. Thank you. Joanne
