Description: Here is a scanned photograph from the Independent newspaper, when Paul Taylor reviewed the Mystery Plays on 18 June 1988.  He says "intelligent staging ideas are a constant delight....  When Adam and Eve eat the apple and turn lustful, they strip off their flesh-coloured topcoats to reveal blood-red gowns beneath.  The shift from pastoral nudity to fallen nakedness looks, aptly. like a skinning alive."  This is Jesus appearing at the Last Judgement.
Judgement 1988
