Date: Saturday 30th July 2022
In September, 2021, at the historic site of , there were a series of open-air repertory performances of all three plays (Origo Mundi, The Passion and The Resurrection).
The epic production gave audiences with an opportunity, if desired, join in with Cornish Language, dancing and sea-song sessions, watch Cornish wrestling, listen to the history of St Just's Plen an Gwari and to wander along the town trails and heritage walks.
The cast of the 14th Century Ordinalia trilogy performances this September delivered, with spades, the aim of the original plays to impress the Christian bible stories on the local population.
With creative, moving, dramatic, witty and farcical scenes adapted from the original by local playwright , the actors, supported by a 34-strong choir, performed at the top of their game.
Over 150 costumes were designed and made for the cast. A team of 27 set builders helped to create and build the set and, in all, over 230 volunteers helped to make the dream a reality.
Now, a film version of this unique occasion and performances is available: a set of scenes from all three plays, complete with an introduction, interviews and other extras.
'The spirit of St Just's Ordinalia should be bottled up and made available on the NHS!' ;
'This was a successful, major community event that could not fail to arouse intense admiration and not a little envy from any outsider' ;
( Running times is 125 minutes including an interval )
