A PASSION play to celebrate Easter will be staged in Broad Street, Alresford, on Friday from 11am.

It is the first time in ten years that the play has been performed in Alresford.

Members of Churches Together in Alresford are presenting a modern day adaptation of the Easter story, following events from Palm Sunday to Good Friday re-told in song, dance, mime and drama directed by Rosemary Waring-Green.

Presented with a 21st-century slant, Jesus in jeans, soldiers in combats, the churches are inviting everyone to come and watch the drama of 2,000 years ago unfold in a working town, as it would have done in Jerusalem.
