of Bethlehem by Nicholas Conti
Playwright Suggestion: Use young people in character
roles to develop acting skills.
Angel Gabe visits Rebecca, the recent widow of one of the
finest Bakers of Bethlehem, to inform her it is God’s wish that she and her
three children pay homage to the Christ child. Guided by the Star of
Bethlehem, they travel forth, greeted by many surprises along the way—all of
which keep up the spirits of this devout (and feisty) family.
In the days of King Herod, on the day of Christ’s birth, the action takes place in Bethlehem of Judea. It is possible to not use any set pieces just a few props. If chosen, though the set should be a simple single-unit set with a small flat, symbolizing the façade of a humble, brightly colored home (single doorway), a symbolized gate (perhaps demonstrated with a saw horse), and a simple flat indicating the stable, in darkness. Active lighting brings it to life.
