Press Cuttings : Informing American tourists about York and the Mystery Plays

Item type: Press Cuttings
Archive reference: YMP/F/11/7
Date/year: May/June 1984
Description: American in Britain, Vol 5 no 3, from May/June 1984.  General information for American tourists visiting York/ Britain.
Includes three photographs by David Dore, one of which is Christ crucified in the Plays.
(Presumably the magazine took an interest because this year an American played God.  The choice of black teacher and actor Keith Jefferson created a lot of media interest in this year.)
Below is a photograph from that year, offstage in Museum Gardens - a little angel wants to talk to a policewoman looking after events.
