FEATURES / CONTAINS

Bare Stage/Simple Set

Written specifically for Christmas, this popular, wonderfully warm and witty play has been performed successfully throughout the year. It is based on both the traditional Christmas stories and modern inventions, and tells of the birth and boyhood of Christ, and of his growing awareness of his destiny. It also tells of a would-be fourth wise man and his comic attempts to capitalize on the coming of the Messiah. The five actors play a variety of roles on a bare stage.

Originally presented off-Broadway in 1964, professionally produced at the Riverside Church in New York in 1965, with many productions throughout the country ever since.

"It is a charming, novel play on an ancient theme. Especially timed for the Christmas season, the play emphasizes what must be a constant complaint of Christian clergymen: that the Christmas message is being lost through materialism, commercialism, and flimsy extraneousness. The very title is suggestive of the danger." - Dr. Arthur T. Buch, Senior Rabbi of Congregation Share Zedek, New York City, writing in the Herald News, Passaic, NJ

"A warm gem of a play. A resourceful and freshly conceived study of the nativity in modern terms." - Lois Chaplin, Christian Science Monitor
