Join InSite for our first project, a staged reading of The Second Shepherds Play, a modern adaptation with music of a hilarious 500-year-old nativity play. The original author is unknown.

Three shepherds are guarding their flocks when Mak, a well-known thief, shows up. When the shepherds fall asleep Mak makes off with one of their charges, and the shepherds go to reclaim their lost sheep. Soon they hear of another who has come to rescue the lost….

Performances will be at 6:30pm Friday and Saturday, December 15 and 16, at University Baptist Church.

The production is intended for ages 8 and up. The show is about an hour long.

Admission is free. Those who wish to may donate to support UBC’s service to the students and teachers of Cesar Chavez Middle School.

This is a workshop performance of what will eventually be the last act of a full-length play based on several short “cycle” or “mystery” biblical plays from medieval England. The play was adapted from Middle English to modern English by Ian Borden. Additional music and material are by the production’s creative team.
