The play which begins at 8 in the morning is announced by the booming of Cannon an hour is Given for lunch at noon and the play is finally finished at 5 30 in the afternoon. A Long time to sit still but it is so interesting that one does not mind it in the least. I was almost afraid that the play would seem sacrilegious to me but it did not. With these people it is simply an act of worship. You remember that in 1833 there was a great plague swept Over Oberammergau killing hundreds of the people and the remaining few vowed that if the plague was stopped they would give the passion play every ten years As a thanksgiving. They have kept that vow Ever since and have consecrated their lives for that purpose.
