Here are some photos from the dress rehearsal for SHAKESPEARE’S LOST CHRISTMAS PLAY at Eskdale High School in Millard County, Utah. First, the back story: Director Lois Faber had produced two scripts of mine a few years ago. In September, she contacted me out of the blue to say she was looking for a Christmas play for her class to perform. She’d come up short. It need to fit a specific number of students, with a specific gender mix, a specific length, and needed to be performed socially distanced. Oh, and it would be nice if it would address the pandemic. So I wrote a script to fit those specifications — except I changed the setting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the plague in Shakespeare’s day.
