DOOMSDAY National Theatre

in a version by Tony Harrison, 1999

Part of The Mysteries Cycle

In a unique celebration of the Millenium, the Royal National Theatre revived one of the most famous shows in its history – The Mysteries, a great cycle of medieval plays, which are part of the foundation of our culture. The original creative team reunited to present a new version of their epoch-making show.

By rooting the plays in a gritty working environment and using contemporary music, Tony Harrison’s superb adaptations reclaimed these seminal works for our times.

Doomsday, the third part of the cycle, celebrates the ascension of Christ into Heaven, the death of his mother, Mary, her ascension and the end of the world as told in the Apocrypha.
