We are keen to support projects with local groups to put on plays and performances within the Cathedral. Through Heritage Lottery Funding we seek to offer performance groups the opportunity to do site specific work based on the heritage of the Cathedral.
In 2014 we commissioned a play by Kate Griffin which wove together stories of conflict and peace from across the centuries. A group was established to workshop the piece and attracted actors from across the country.
In 2015 we are building on initial exploratory work with the Theatre Royal Wakefield, who are developing a project around the Wakefield Mysteries with young people.
