    Ritual forms the basis of all theatre, and the great English mystery plays such as the Wakefield Creation and the York Crucifixion are no exception. This landmark study by the founder of the Surrey Players, who staged the first production of the Towneley Plays in three centuries, describes how medieval drama developed from the liturgy. Concentrating on their performance practice and audience impact, it shows how these dramas formed a genuine 'theatre of the people'.
