        What’s the Story?

        As a comedy writer, I am frequently leant on to write nativity plays and sketches for the various churches I have attended. It’s something I’m very happy to do. And they keep asking me, so I guess I’m doing it okay.

        I wrote the nativity plays with my own church in mind (and my own children). Given that schools tend to make a big song and dance about nativity-like plays, my church tends not to give hours and hours over to rehearsals, so the nativity plays are written to be easy to stage with comparatively few speaking parts. There are some parts that can be read aloud and lots of roles for angels and sheep for the little ones to get dressed up, run and around and generally look adorable. Also, I tend to think that most things are better when they’re short. The three nativity plays are mercifully on the short side, especially compared to the epic stories you might get in schools. And these plays are at least based on what the Bible actually says.

        Once I’ve written them and they’ve been performed, they tend to sit on my laptop gathering e-dust, only blown off when a friend emails me to ask if I happen to have a nativity play lying around.

        It’s only just occurred to me that thanks to the internet, gathering up this material and getting it out there has never been easier. So all I’ve done here is hastily pull together the nativity plays, sketches and dramatic readings I’ve written - typos and all - and made them available for what I hope is a reasonable fee.

        Once you have them, you don’t need to ask my permission to perform them to a church audience or anything like that. Feel free to print off the relevant pages or photocopy them for your performers, cut lines, add lines, write better jokes and generally tailor the material to your needs.

        All that said, the material is still copyright to me, so you are not at liberty to sell it on or produce professional productions based on this material. Neither seems likely, granted.

        I hope and pray this material is a blessing – or at least saves you having to stay up all night trying to write something of your own.
