What is it?
A stranger arrives in Birmingham City Centre as the biggest festival in its history begins. The events of the next few days will turn the world upside down.
A Passion For Birmingham is a new promenade play reimagining one of the world’s most important stories, the life and death of Jesus Christ, as a gripping contemporary drama, a political thriller, a study of the abuse of religious power, and of friendships ripped apart and rebuilt.
A unique collaboration between Birmingham Cathedral, The Old Joint Stock Pub & Theatre and the Wellington Pub, this is an event for the whole community of multicultural Birmingham.
A Passion For Birmingham is a promenade production which will lead its audience around both familiar spaces and hidden spaces in the three venues via the passageways and alleyways which surround them. In each new location, a new scene unfolds.
Founded in 2012 and based out of a 105-seat studio theatre above the Old Joint Stock Pub in Birmingham, The Old Joint Stock Theatre Company champions big plays for small spaces, and forgotten and neglected writing.
