FIVE years in the planning, seven months in rehearsals and only three performances left.
The Chester Mystery Plays, the city’s quinquennial medieval pageant, will come to an end on Saturday with a matinee performance of The Prophecy at 1pm and an evening performance of The Fulfilment at 7.30pm.
The plays have been watched by 13,000 people and chairman Jo Sykes is looking forward to a well-earned holiday.
“I am so proud of the production and the superb performances,” she said.
“It’s an exciting and unique piece of theatre and something very special for Chester.
“Artistically, the plays have been very successful and we’ve had great national reviews and superb local coverage.”
A full interview with Jo Sykes on the success of the 2008 Chester Mystery Plays will appear in this Friday’s Chronicle.
