share your memories

If you have material to add to our collection or would like to share your memories of the Mystery Plays over the years since 1951, please contact us via any of the methods listed on this page.  We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who has taken part in the Mystery Plays or who worked behind the scenes.  For instance, do you have a copy of the script which you used?  
The archive is missing a photograph of Alan Dobie as Jesus (1963) - do you have one?  Or a better photograph of Simon Ward (Jesus 1984)?  Whatever you can contribute, from personal reminiscences to newspaper clippings, we would be delighted to hear from you.
