    Playing a Part in History: The York Mysteries, 1951 - 2006 (Studies in Early English Drama) by Margaret Rogerson
    English | Apr. 4, 2009 | ISBN: 0802099246 | 328 Pages | PDF | 1.79 MB

    The York Mystery Plays are a cycle of originally performed on wagons in the city.

    They date from the fourteenth century and Biblical narrative from Creation to Last Judgment. After nearly four hundred years without a performance, a revival of the York Mysteries began in 1951 when local amateurs led by professional theatre practitioners staged them during the festival of Britain. Playing a Part in History examines the ways in which the revival of these plays transformed them for twentieth- and twenty-first-century audiences. Considering such topics as the contemporary popularity of the plays, the agendas of the revivalists, and major production differences, Margaret Rogerson provides a fascinating comparison of medieval and modern English drama. Drawing extensively on archival material, and newspaper and academic reviews of the plays in recent years, Playing a Part in History is not only an illuminating account of early English drama, but also of the ways in which theatre allows people to interact with the past.[​IMG]
