‘Hope Rises’, the 2022 Edinburgh Easter Play, is a dynamic production, telling the Easter story in a contemporary way. The actors are a group of refugees who have arrived in a foreign city. They have brought with them only what they can carry — but they have a story to tell…

Our creative director, Suzanne Lofthus, says: “Set against the backdrop of today’s refugee crisis, the story is as relevant now as it has ever been. It is about hope, and the world needs hope now as much as it ever did.”
