A play for Christmas by JAMES FORSYTH with Jane Wenham , Robert Eddlson Anthony Jackson

Henry Stamper '

Emmanuel is about the birth of the child Christ and of the imagined drama of the human occasion of that birth. The author suggests that ' it could never be less than an exciting story, whose subject is birth, its new hopes, and the persecution of new hope.'

The action takes place in the hills around Bethlehem, in the Stable, and in the Palace of Herod in Jerusalem.
