The Passion of Sophia – a short play for Easter

April 10, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


“The Passion of Sophia” is a contemporary passion play, performed by members of the local community, and the latest in a series of original work performed at St Cuthbert’s in Sprowston. A sideways look at the Easter story, with an eye on contemporary culture, consumerism, gender politics, mental health, and environmental concerns, as well as how the idea of Christ ultimately transcends our labels of gender, nationality, and class.

Welcome to Baal’s nightclub, conveniently located within crawling distance of the Holy Mountain. Your host for the evening is Moloch – he’s a bit of a Bull, so beware any virgin who enters here.

Enter Sophia, she is wisdom from an earlier age; her grace is largely forgotten, but every so often you can still hear her love song on the wind.

​Sophia is clearing her house, searching for her greatest treasure. Her search brings her to the lost, the lonely and the dying; she dispenses wisdom wherever she goes, and many find healing within her presence; they strive to touch the hem of her skirts.

Soon, the influence of Sophia cannot be tolerated anymore, and the hunt is on. Time for Sophia’s identity to be finally revealed….

The show promises to be both entertaining and challenging. Do you believe in Mirror balls? Come along to one of our performances and find out.

Admission – suggested donation of £4 on the door.
