It is impossible to do justice to this remarkable work with so few words. The book is in two parts: The Vision Books contains poems and raps, whilst the second section contains the Mystery plays themselves. A glance at the list of players reveals the huge range of historical periods covered by the plays. There is also a comprehensive glossary, explaining references from the Clink to Costcutter and Jacob's Island to the Jubilee Line.

The changing menu always has several mouth watering delights and combined with a good selection of wine is a real treasure for the area. <http://www.southwark-playhouse.co.uk> James Barber The above review was one of the winning entries in the competition in a recent [SE1 Direct].
