SALTMINE Theatre Company is bringing its unique retelling of the Easter story to the streets of Dudley next week.

The Dudley-based creative arts charity will be performing a contemporary retelling of Jesus’ last days, death and resurrection live on the streets of Dudley on Friday April 19 and Saturday April 20.

The audience will be able to follow the actors as they perform at locations throughout the town centre.

Both performances start at the Duncan Edwards statue at 12.30pm and aim to finish at 2pm at the Evolve Theatre in Coronation Gardens.

People can join the performance as it moves through the streets. It will travel from the Duncan Edwards statue, to the fountain in the Market Place, along the High Street, to Stone Street Square, Coronation Gardens and Evolve college.

Rachael Orrell, CEO, Saltmine Theatre Company, said: “It is a privilege for us to tell the story of Jesus on the streets of Saltmine’s hometown, Dudley.

"Performed in Birmingham, Norwich, Stafford and now here, this Passion Play is an unconventional, contemporary and powerful re-telling of the First Easter.

"We hope everyone who follows the dramatic action with its live music through Dudley town centre will have a memorable experience."

Kevin O’Keefe, chief executive of Dudley Council, added: “The dedicated staff from the Saltmine Theatre Company and our borough churches have put a great deal of work into staging a distinctive and modern telling of the Easter story, held on the streets of Dudley town centre.

"I hope residents will enjoy these unique live performances.”
