sv podcast – the Edinburgh Easter Play

We have a special feature for Easter! Our roving reporter, Margaret, has been out talking to people involved in this year’s Easter Play in Edinburgh. This is a large-scale community Passion Play telling the Easter story and takes place in Edinburgh’s Princes Street Gardens on Easter Saturday each year.

Margaret speaks with the play’s director, Suzanne Lofthus; Rachel Wood whose idea the play first was, and some of this year’s cast members.

[Length 21’21 minutes]
