Marston Mummers' Play

A modern revival of a traditional English folk-play featuring St. George, Bold Slasher, Father Christmas, Dr John Schorne, Happy Jack and Beelzebub. Mummers' Plays are performed by troupes of amateur actors –Mummers - and can be traced back to the 1200s, were common in the 1700s, and are said to be the origins of our Pantomimes. Our first revival Mummers Play will draw upon an old Quainton script and some other historical scripts.
