The Butterfingers Angel

Created by William Gibson (The Miracle Worker), one of America’s major dramatists, this touching, funny and highly imaginative retelling of the Nativity story is presented from a fresh and richly creative point-of-view. The action follows a free-spirited Mary who had decided that men and marriage were not for her, a suddenly cautious Joseph who contends that he is too old for his intended, and a flustered boy-angel who directs each scene from a prompt book and can only manage to get the most strangled, bleating sounds from his trumpet. Enhanced by a talking tree, sheep and a donkey, along with traditional Christmas music, this wholly original theatre piece is both secular and sacred - often antic, but the spirit of reverence, joy, and the true significance of the occasion is never lost. Reviews “Angelic...beguiling wit and likable as it is lively...” —Boston Herald-American. “...a gift of love and hope to the world.” —Syracuse Herald
