This is a puppet play directed at a family audience. It is a Christmas story which parallels the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem with the birth of the child of a homeless teenage couple in almost any modern city. On a night of celebration, when people gather to mark the birth of Jesus Christ, another baby, another special, precious baby, is also being born, also under difficult circumstances.The play is written both as a stand-alone play for performance, and as a performance accompanying a religious ceremony/service/mass. It is intended to be entirely non-denominational.
