Note the long hair of the players Before the play begins. Our host fires the signal gun To give you some idea of the play, we are including a few views from some of the official pictures The theatre is of simple but modern design The stage is open to the sky Anton Lang as prologue leads the chorus on before each scene The morning play begins with the entry into Jerusalem and ends with the betrayal In the afternoon the chief scenes are the appearance before Pilate the crucifixion and the resurrection After a tableau of the Ascension the chorus conclude with a mighty song of praise When the play is over We meet many of the chief players Anton Lang is now prologue. He is a potter and posed for us at his wheel and in front of his shop Alois Lang plays Christus and is a clever wood carver. He is also fond of children Mary Magdelene John Judas acts so well that one of the audience shot at him with a gun. He is thankful we are only after him with a camera Nightfall near the village End of Part II
