This sounds pretty far fetched on the face of it, at least for English
guild-sponsored drama, but I thought I would post it to the group and see
what happened!


I've read in a couple of places (I'm trying to remember where) that
in some instances, condemned criminels participated in medieval
mystery plays--their own execution lending dramatic realism to the
depiction of a martyrdom scene.

Is this verifiably true?  do we have documented instances of this

Are there also other ways in which the very real become part of the
'play' like this?
