The Wintershall Players, have become renowned for their epic re-enactments of what is, indeed, the greatest story of all time.
Every year on Good Friday The Passion of Jesus is performed to over 20,000 people in Trafalgar Square and every summer The Life of Christ is presented at the Hutley family’s beautiful farm, the Wintershall Estate, an area of extraordinary natural beauty which sits within the rolling landscape of the Surrey Hills, less than an hour from London.
From Tuesday 20 to Saturday 24 June, 10am–3.30pm, this open-air epic promenade performance, in three acts, will take the audience back in time to the Palestine of Jesus’ day.
James Burke-Dunsmore leads a cast of more than 100 dedicated volunteers, dressed in full costume, in this moving and authentic re-enactment of the remarkable events of Jesus’ life. A hauntingly beautiful soundtrack and a full complement of sheep, horses, and of course, a donkey make this one of the most moving and evocative live events of the summer.
Perfect for schools, families, faith groups or theatre lovers, The Life of Christ is unforgettable.
Wintershall, in the heart of the Surrey countryside, is a privately owned farm and park land. Peter and Ann Hutley have lived here for nearly 50 years and under their stewardship, the estate has expanded into a haven for wildlife, mature woodland and farmland. It is also the home of the theatrical productions of The Acts of the Apostles and The Wintershall Nativity plays.
The Life of Christ was originally written and adapted from the Bible by Peter to mark the Millennium. Staged as a one-off production in 1999, it was so popular it has been performed almost every year in the 18 years since.
The Life of Christ is directed by the West End theatre producer and director Ashley Herman.
There will be free parking nearby for coaches, minibuses and individuals.
