The Pomology Project

Urban Mummers Plays

Urban Mummers Plays

‘Mummers plays’ are traditional folk plays, often performed by amateurs in rural locations. Three new mummers plays will be created as part of The Pomology Project that focus on aspects of UK society that are common to us all. Performed at Simmerdown Festival 2019, these satirical skits take in sound system culture, a ‘strong and stable’ MC-ing Teresa May, endless queues for housing reform and an NHS that is seeking the ultimate antidote.

Written by playwright Liz Mytton. Props, costumes and casting by General Public.

Performed by Tonia Daley-Campbell, Jade Samuels, Andre-Pierre, Julian Southall & Radiance Anaele.
