Pace Egg plays

As a child (1950+) I was taken to see the annual Pace Egg play in HB market square every Easter. I found the proceedings totally bizarre but, in later life, I have acquired an interest in historical customs.

I regularly participate in a Mummers Play around Christmas organised by Chichester Folk Song Club. I am struck by the similarity of the plot (or lack of same).
We (Chichester Folk Song Club) would like to perform a seasonal production around Easter and a Pace Egg play would seem to fit the bill.

What I am looking for is a script. I acknowledge laws of copyright but I hope that the oral/aural tradition might be transmissable through this medium!
Any help would be much appreciated.
