‘The use of drama has so many benefits, and it is very good to see this applied imaginatively to the work of the Soul by the Sea team. Their efforts this year, which help support those that are vulnerable, will ensure the Brighton community are able to understand, and be a part of, the original Easter story.’ Bishop Martin of Chichester

‘I am delighted the Passion of Christ is returning to Brighton this Easter. With a mixture of theatre and faith, and a volunteer cast from our local community, the production is accessible to all. Produced by Soul by the Sea, it is an exciting project to see taking place in Brighton this year.’ Anne Meadows, Deputy Mayor of Brighton & Hove 2012

‘The Passion Play presents a great chance for residents of Brighton & Hove to witness the Easter story live in our home city. The suffering and triumph portrayed in this moving production speaks to everyone, regardless of their background or beliefs. The work of everybody involved is inspiring. I hope that as many people as possible will come along and get involved in this amazing spectacle.’ Mike Weatherley, MP for Hove & Portslade

‘The Brighton production of the Passion of Christ is for people of all faiths and walks of life. The creative way the Easter story is retold fits in perfectly with our Brighton culture which is rich in theatre, arts and music. It is an inspiring production to be a part of and I really hope the event builds year on year.’ Andy Au, Founder Movement in Worship
