West of Bethlehem – a one-act play with music by Ethan Norman
The piece focuses on the powerful contrast in the imagery behind the Shepherds. In the Kingdom of God, Shepherd is an honored title and the Shepherd is a picture of leadership. In the kingdom of men, the Shepherd is the dregs of society; and shepherding is a task of drudgery with little personal gain. We delve into this example for us in Christ as it plays out in the Christmas story, with laughter and with heaviness at moments.
West of Bethlehem, offers your fellowship, in the midst of a crazy season, a reminder to set aside some jingle bells and remember the beauty, majesty, and perfection of the story that God gave us. A story where God’s majestic birth announcement, came to what the world would call the lowest of the low.
Length: 30-40 minutes

A funny, touching portrait of two people searching for happiness. This simply staged romance played to critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Off-Broadway.
“… a gently charming little play, reminiscent of Thornton Wilder in its look at rustic Americans who are to be treasured for their simplicity and directness …”
