Passion Play 2024

Telling the story of the ultimate sacrifice

Passion Plays are dramatic presentations depicting the Passion of Jesus Christ: his trial, suffering and death, and resurrection.  They are performed in many cities around the UK and around the world and bring the true meaning of Easter to our streets.

In 2023, many of those watching were moved to tears by the emotion of the drama playing out before them in the heart of historic Worcester.

We invite you to come and see this amazing story for yourself this Easter!

About Us

The story of Jesus and his crucifixion was arguably the biggest sacrifice with the greatest implications on humanity. For too many people this story is untold, so we at Passion Play Worcester want to bring this story to the people of Worcester and surrounding towns.
