The Souls Awaken
Rudolf Steiner's Fourth Mystery Drama
Saturday 3rd November 2018 - Sunday 4th November 2018
Starts at 2pm and lasts 5-6 hours
Steiner’s Mystery Dramas go far beyond our normal conceptions of drama. They take place on several different planes of existence. As well as the contemporary human beings at the centre of the drama, various spiritual beings appear, who are involved, whether for good or bad, in the inner trials of the characters. The Mystery Dramas are above all contemporary dramas of initiation.
In -‘The Souls Awaken’- challenges are faced which have a clear and urgent relevance to our contemporary reality. The characters face difficulties that are immediately recognisable – seemingly rigid management structures, the economic realities of running a business with spiritual aims and the challenge of technology. Above all it is about the huge spiritual struggles the characters’ encounter within themselves and with each other.
The Stroud Mystery Drama Group is a group of mainly amateur performers who have successfully staged the first three of Rudolf Steiner’s Mystery Dramas over the last seven years. This production involves a cast of more than twenty people and will include live music, a beautiful set, eurythmy and intense drama.
