The Globe Mysteries

The Globe Mysteries

An adaptation of biblical/medieval short stories adapted for The Globe by Tony Harrison.

"Beginning with the creation and ending with the last judgement, the English Mysteries introduced aspects of medieval life into theatrical representations of the bible. With community guilds presenting relevant scenes on lavishly decorated wagons or platforms, these collections of plays were developed from the 10th Century up until just before Shakespeare's own plays were performed."
