The Passion monologues

The Passion monologues

Filmed in isolation in the actors’ own homes, The Passion Monologues are a response to COVID-19 and being unable to tour live this Easter.

The monologues cover the key events of Holy Week from the points of view of Mary Magdalene, Simon Peter and a young centurion called Marcus and are extracts from the full production of The Passion.
