The Second Shepherds’ Play is one of the most popular medieval Biblical comedies, written by the anonymous author known as the Wakefield Master. Part of the collection of plays in the Towneley manuscript, it tells the story of the three shepherds who are the first people to hear the news of the miraculous birth of the Christ child. But the Angel only appears to them after a hilarious slapstick comedic romp involving the sheep-thief Mak and his wife Jill. This production is based on the modernized text by David Parry and directed by PLS Artistic Director Linda Phillips.
