Sally Waterson, producer of the drama,  said: "All of the cast members are committed to give their best performance for this moving drama, which enacts the Bible account of the death of Jesus Christ, remembered each year on Good Friday."

The play does not include the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Day. It is however celebrated with a dawn service next to the Quaker Meeting House in Settle.
