In 2013, Ten Ten Theatre – the Catholic professional theatre company – staged a Passion Play based on the Stations of the Cross involving over 250 people from the local churches and schools in Runcorn and Frodsham, in the North-West of England. The final performance took place in the town’s main shopping centre on Holy Saturday. It was a profound and moving experience for those who took part and for those who saw the event.
One year on, we would like to share this experience with you.
Starting on Palm Sunday, and continuing throughout Holy Week, we will send out daily emails with prayers written by the people of Runcorn, inspired by the Stations of the Cross. Please encourage your friends, communities, parishes and networks to sign up to our special mailing list to receive this very special way of preparing for Easter. We will also make a film of the entire performance of The Runcorn Passion available online for one week only throughout Holy Week.
Before then, please may I encourage you to spend 15 minutes watching this short film we have created which tells the story of The Runcorn Passion: A Celebration of Faith, and a Celebration of Community.
Thank you for your time. We look forward to sharing the journey of Holy Week with you.
