What

Between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries, miracle or mystery plays began in the churches of England and France. These pageants began with the nativity and then grew to other stories from the Bible. They were first performed by the priests but eventually the guilds took over their production, and the performances moved outside of the church and became more secular. Some early references to the figures called them “motions,” an early word for puppet. In France, the story goes that these dramas were called “little Marys” or marionettes. The priests and later the guilds would set up stations and the dramas could be viewed throughout the church as the audience moved from station to station. Today you get to sit still, but we hope our little play moves you as well.
