Streaming Video - 2006

This production is part of the historic 1998 staging of the Corpus Christi Cycle in York, England, and captures the majesty and color of the original 14th- to 16th-century plays. Sponsored by the Company of Butchers, performed on a story wagon on the streets of York amidst an enraptured crowd, and using medieval materials and techniques, the performance strives for authenticity. The affecting play portrays the impact of the crucifixion on several very different people: Pilate, members of the Sanhedrin, the two thieves, Christ's mother, and the Roman centurion who accepts Christ as God's son.
