Review by: Alex Steyn on Jan. 13, 2014 :
Stunning play. Well written and easy to read. What I enjoyed the most was the alternative view to what is a very well-known story. Flip van der Merwe has taken the characters of the nativity and really brought them to life. So many times we read the Bible and never consider that these were real people in a real situation, with real emotions and fears: Loved it. (I am already trying to see how I can use some of the material for our church's nativity at the end of the year...)
