The Play's the Thing
An article by Ben House on reviving Medieval morality-style plays - in his case using them as a part of a Christman festival at a Christian school.

Here is an idea (more in keeping with how these plays were originally produced): Put on a series of plays at a public square or park in your community. Each play could be sponsored by a local Christian business in much the same way the guilds sponored the plays in the middle ages. It would be a marvelous way to get the biblical message out to our neighbors, bring the Christian community together, and give Christian actors a venue for their craft.

(They did something similar with some of Doug Jones' plays in Moscow at last summer's Trinity Fest.)
