The Supporters Trust will be performing the Harrowing of Hell.  We are delighted that Ben Prusiner has accepted our invitation to direct the production.  Ben Prusiner is the artistic director of Re:Verse Theatre, which stages socially conscious productions of classical plays. He has directed in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles & Japan, and holds an MA in Applied Theatre from the City University of New York. In York he has directed twice for the York Shakespeare Project (King Lear Henry VIII) as well as Re:Verse Theatre’s Volpone, or Out-Foxed at Rowntree Park as part of the York International Shakespeare Festival. 

Ben writes: I‘m thrilled to be directing The Harrowing of Hell for the Trust’s addition to the Mystery Plays Waggon Cycle. York’s theatrical tradition is incredibly exciting and unique, and I’m grateful for the chance to be involved with an organization that has kept the passion for these plays alive for so many years. The Harrowing is an exciting drama in its own right, with opportunities for great theatricality, dramatic conflict, and stunning visuals. I’m excited to get started and meet everyone who wants to be a part of it!
