Presented at Crucible

Running time: Approximately 2 hours (including an interval)

5 stars The Public Reviews

On and on dawn breaks
And spills down streets like a split egg yolk
Soft and golden to the city’s sizzling pan…

A single day, taking us from dawn till dusk, from the beginning of time to the ends of the earth, from Stannington to Woodhouse.

Inspired by and responding to the medieval mystery cycles, The Sheffield Mysteries offer a frank and funny celebration of the human spirit, with a distinctly Yorkshire flavour. Performed by around one hundred actors, singers, dancers and musicians from Sheffield People’s Theatre (Lives in Art, 20 Tiny Plays About Sheffield).

Age guidance: 12+. Please note, this production contains some mild swear words.

The Crucible is the main producing venue in the Sheffield Theatres complex. On occasion, the Crucible hosts touring work. The Crucible is also the home of the annual World Snooker Championship.
The performance area is a thrust stage which extends into the auditorium, enabling the audience to watch the action on three sides. No member of the audience is ever further than 22 metres from the stage, and the sightlines are excellent, offering equality of experience across the auditorium.
