Mystery Steps presented by STAN'S CAFE
for Coventry Mysteries
9th - 16th June
Coventry Mysteries, Coventry City Centre
9 - 16 June 2012
Specially commissioned for Coventry Mysteries and installed in former cafe in Coventry's City Centre, Mystery Steps encouraged its audience to act out a moment in the life of a medieval cafe.
Whilst out back a chef, is asleep in the stores, someone's butchering a pig and children are hard at work with the washing up, waiting and spit turning, out front a host of customers a having fun, queuing for the latest delicacies and playing local sports; meanwhile a team are enacting a mystery play in the cafe's window for gathered passers-by. Their show is of a miracle, loaves and fishes from a boy's packed lunch being used to feed five thousand people.
Devised by Simon Ford, Denise Stanton and James Yarker
With Craig Stephens and Christina M Kruise.
