A powerful and moving new play, ‘The Cambridge Passion’ tells the story of the events in the final week of the life of Jesus of Nazareth.
When Jesus, a Galilean Rabbi, enters Jerusalem to celebrate the Festival of Passover, events are set in motion that will lead to his crucifixion by the occupying Roman forces – a crucifixion that will be turned upside by his Resurrection from the dead.
The play is being staged by Westcott House, one of the Anglican Theological Colleges in the city. Following highly successful performances in the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham and with a cast of local ordinands, the play aims to tell the narrative at the heart of the Christian faith in an exciting, dynamic and fresh way.
Set to an epic soundtrack and with all profits going to charity, ‘The Cambridge Passion’ is the ideal way to consider the meaning behind Lent and Easter.
The play is running on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th March at 7:30 pm at Emmanuel URC Church on Trumpington Street. Tickets cost £7 are available from the ADC Theatre Box Office https://www.adcticketing.com/whats-on/drama/the-cambridge-passion.aspx
