Easter Pasche Egg play. Performed by Furness Morris dancers. The play is a synopsis of plays that were performed in many of the Furness villages in previous times (19th/early 20th Century). Basically it is in the form of most traditional Spring mumming plays; a short, fairly humorous play on the theme of death/rebirth, with a fight between good and evil. The characters include Lord Nelson, Saint George, and Evil Knight and a quack Doctor. It is suitable for all ages.There is no charge. The play lasts about 15 minutes, followed by some Morris dancing for about the same period. At the end we can offer a dance for anyone who would like to join in! Furness Morris revived the tradition in 1965, and this year are only performing the play in local Furness communities. Come and enjoy the play, support a local tradition.

2022 version We hope you had the chance to see us around the area on Easter Monday. Sorry if you missed us this time but over the summer you can see us dance out once we have finalised our programme.
