The Trials of Mary

Fri 14 Jul 2017 - Sun 16 Jul 2017
  • Duration:1 hr 15 mins approx.

The story of Mary & Joseph as you've never seen it before...

Join us for a moving tale of one woman’s loyalty, a comedy of manners, and a thriller all in one.

The incredible story of the woman who agrees to bear a surrogate baby, her marriage to an old Joseph, the humiliating trials of her dignity, a long journey with no inn at the end, and the final escape from a cruel dictator is one of the world’s most well-known stories – or is it? 

500 years ago stonemasons and carpenters celebrated this drama on the streets of the city – now it has been updated to re-celebrate this extraordinary sequence of events.

Eastern Angles will be reviving the gripping stories in a fresh and new atmospheric way.

Be part of the spectacle as we tour across the city over three days: starting on the green by The Undercroft at Serpentine Green on Friday, to the iconic steps outside Peterborough Cathedral on Saturday, moving to the picturesque surroundings at Nene Park in the evening before final performances in the heart of the city at Cathedral Square on Sunday.

Bring a picnic, sit back and enjoy free summer theatre in your local vibrant and historic locations.
