'The Mary Play, or Gabriel's Message,' an Advent play adapted from English Mystery Plays, will be presented at St. Mark's Episcopal Church this Saturday afternoon from 3 to 4, followed by a festive reception. The public is invited.
'The Mary Play' has been adapted by M. J. Gentes from 'The Annunciation'of the York Corpus Christi Cycle of Mystery Plays, as well as the Wakefield Salutation of Elizabeth and the play of Joseph's Return, all medieval guild plays, often staged originally on wagons as part of civic and church pageants, produced by craft guilds.
Noted local actor Charles Shaw Robinson has directed the play.
St. Mark's also has a toy giveaway for the Fireman's Association. Playgoers are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys for 12 year-olds and under to donate to the Association's charity.
