Manx Passion at the Abbey

After months of planning and rehearsal, one of the most ambitious projects planned for the Year of Culture gets underway today (Sun)

"The Manx Passion" is a massive promenade performance of the bible story from the creation to the crucifixion and resurrection.

It will be performed by a large company of local actors, actresses, choirs and musicians as a sequence of three stand-alone stories -Creation, nativity and Passion - over the next week in a variety of locations around the Island including Mooragh Park, Maughold Church, St Johns and Rushen Abbey.

However, today (Sun) there is a one-off performance of the whole play, expected to run for around three and half hours.

Director Jan Palmer-Sayer says it's NOT too much to take in at a single sitting

Today's performance of the whole of the Manx Passion is at Rushen Abbey from 2pm
