passion play

A passion play is a story about Jesus and his life, especially his suffering and death. People act out the story on a stage or in a theater, and other people come to watch them. It's like a big play that tells an important story from the Bible. There are lots of different passion plays, and they are usually performed around Easter time. Some people think that watching a passion play helps them understand Jesus better and feel closer to God.
