Two for Christmas is two shows in one.

Travel back in time to 1479 England - and end up in Budbill's mythical Judevine with Antoine, Doug, Arnie and Tommy!

Act One features The Second Shepherds Play - Budbill's faithful translation of a 15th century miracle play. Medieval miracle plays were known for mixing humor, music, and reverence. Told all in verse, The Second Shepherds' Play is the story of a poor thief in 1479 Wakefield England who steals a lamb from some shepherds on Christmas Eve, and brings it home to his cantankerous wife. Upon realizing he's been discovered, the thief's wife jumps into bed with the lamb and pretends the lamb's her newborn baby. Then, returning to their flock, the shepherds encounter an Angel.

Act Two is The Pulp Cutters' Nativity. The same basic story but 500 years later in Judevine! The shepherds are now loggers, a chainsaw replaces the lamb, and the Angel is a waitress in the local diner.
