Drummer at the passion play in front of a statue of Duncan Edwards in Dudley town centreThrough partnership, prayer and financial support Saltmine Theatre Company brought this incredible vision to life. Journeying through the high street with a passionate community cast, attentive engage team and organised team of stewards, the performances immersed all who came in Jesus’ life death and resurrection: 

Bishop Martin said: "It was amazing and so moving to see Dudley town centre come alive to the story of the Passion. I had teenagers near me who stopped to see what was going on, making some cynical comments before following the cast to take in the whole thing! The final resurrection scene was done so well, with integrity, beauty and just bursting with life. Thank you Saltmine!"
