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!

A.

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
practice?

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