The eleventh play from the York Corpus Christi Plays is the final play before the New Testament, providing a commentary on later events- in particular, the Last Supper (with its shared celebration of the Feast of Passover) and the Harrowing of Hell (with the release of souls from captivity). It is based on Exodus 1-14. The play was originally performed by the Guild of Hosiers, who made stockings and hosiery.
The play has the opportunity for spectacular theatrical effects, including a burning bush, a staff turning into a serpent, and the dividing of the Red Sea- along with the possibility of the ten plagues. The latter includes "a great pestilence", a horror familiar to both the medieval performers and to our own time.
In the modern era, the play has not been included in the Museum Gardens or Minster productions, but has been occasionally seen on the waggons, in 2002 and 2018.
