Lincoln Mystery Plays 2020- GAINSBOROUGH | Gainsborough Old Hall | Thursday, 23. July 2020
Thirty eight years of [modern] Lincoln Mystery plays and we welcome new director Tom Straszewski – bringing to Lincoln his enthusiasm, excellence and experience from artistic direction and regular involvement in the York Mystery Plays – Through deep and forensic knowledge of mystery plays, their heritage and contemporary relevance, Tom will interpret them for a modern day audience.By teasing out all of the hidden humour and humanity, presenting scenes and scenarios rarely aired and staging them in a manner never seen before, the show will be refreshing, relevant and performed with powerful immediacy.“The N-Town text used at Lincoln is deeply concerned with truth-telling and shaping stories,” says Tom, a scholar of mystery plays, which originated as a mechanism for bringing the Bible to life for the Medieval masses. “This speaks loudly at a time when truth feels unstable, politicians lie for power, and everybody has their own story to tell. This concept will guide the 2020 production, creating an ensemble who come together to tell their stories. Truth, Lies and Power being the theme for this production, we will be in for an exciting evening's theatre!
