No Hidden Surprises
The play was first performed in 1634 and is the result of a vow made by the inhabitants of the village that if God spared them from the effects of the bubonic plague then sweeping the region they would perform a passion play every ten years. The play is now performed in years ending with a zero, except 1984 which was the 350th anniversary, and involves over 2,000 performers, all residents of the village. The next Passion Play won’t be until 2020! Oberammergau Passion Plays 2010
