Press Cuttings : Cutting 1984 John Barber review of Mystery Play

Item type: Press Cuttings
Archive reference: YMP/F/11/4
Date/year: 11 June 1984
Description: John Barber in the Daily Telegraph of 11 June 1984 reviews the York Festival and Mystery Plays.  The review is generally positive. Includes photograph (here very badly reproduced) with caption: 'A scene from the York Mystery Plays performed in the ruins of St Mary's Abbey, York. The production continues until July 1.'   The choice of black teacher and actor Keith Jefferson created a lot of media interest in this year.  
Here is a photograph donated by Gweno Williams of Keith Jefferson in costume behind the scenes.
