The Passion – a contemporary play for modern audiences. Gatton Park, Reigate  at 7.30 pm on 14-17 & 20-23 July 2022

We still have a few roles to fill – temple guards, robbers on the cross, disciples.  Speaking and non-speaking roles are available for both adults and young people.  If you are interested in taking part, please contact us at:   info@gattontheatre.org.uk. 

The Passion follows the story of Jesus and his ministry, staged at various stunning locations in Gatton Park, concluding with the events of Holy Week, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection.  Audiences are invited to join this journey, both physically and emotionally, as they travel together with the cast through Gatton Park as followers of Jesus and involved in the events unfolding before them.  Through this production of The Passion, GCT hopes to bring to life the familiar story on which our shared faith is based, which it is hoped will involve, engage and inspire as many people as possible. 

This large-scale open-air production was first performed at Gatton in 2009 having been devised by the cast and written by Anna Thompson, daughter of the late Bishop Jim Thompson,.  This year it is being directed by Libby Egwuba. The role of Jesus is being played by actor Dominic Rye with all other roles played by members of churches of different denominations in the area, members of the local community and from local primary and secondary schools.  The production also includes musicians and local PATH choir.

Audience members are invited to picnic on Gatton Hall’s parterre with its outstanding countryside views from 6.00pm, prior to performances starting at 7.30pm.   Adult £12, child £8, family group £35.
