what they’re saying…
"...One of the Fringe's best. It's smart, it's polished, it's honest, and it has a bright future ahead of it."
"Its simple beauty... makes it a timeless work."
"...A hit! See it wherever and whenever you can!"
"...the magic in the air was palpable."
- Knoxville Mercury
…an unusual tale
This piece dares to take the classic story at its word. There really is a pregnant virgin. There really is just a dream interposed between her and death by stoning. There are shepherds, angels, foreign dignitaries (a.k.a. wise men), a ratty extra room/stable at an inn, and a maniacal, bloodthirsty dictator whose menacing shadow hangs over everything. And obviously, it's a comedy.
Seriously, it is.
