Broadcast on Classic FM on Christmas Day 2011, The Christmas Mysteries is a play based on The Wakefield Mysteries – the medieval pageants performed in the late Middle Ages. It tells the nativity story from the points of view of a rowdy rabble of smelly tanners, a saucy knave, a pious Abbot and a God-Fearing former monk, interspersed with English classical music. The Christmas Mysteries was written by David Spicer and co-produced by Unique the Production Company.
