Was she amused I wonder?

By helenlinda
Yesterday I went to the Birmingham Passion Play. It was a contemporary retelling of the Easter story, performed live, proceeding from Birmingham Bullring, moving up along New Street to Victoria Square and finishing at St Philip's Cathedral. I struggled to keep up with the crowd, and wondered what Queen Victoria would have made of it all as she looked down over the square as Jesus was arrested, tried and condemned to die.
A selection of the scenes performed by a diverse team of communuty actors alongside Saltmine Theatre Company. Very moving.

Excellent. The combination of the engaged crowd looking one way and the sniffy monarch looking the other way amuses me.

Think Vickie's more interested in something happening the other direction in the lead! 😀 A fine set of images of this event, Helen 👍
