The Nativity 2015

Written by Frank Bramwell


A re-telling of the Nativity, based on the Mystery Plays of the 15th Century, that incorporates the contemporary stories of a Jewellery Quarter Big Issue seller and the regulars of a Pub in Great Hampton Street, Birmingham.


This hard-hitting piece of social drama was performed by a company of 11, half of which had links with the Jewellery Quarter. The cast were a mixture of first-time, amateur, and professional actors.
