Open Source Theatre Project goes medieval on Christmas with their inaugural production: The Shepherds’ Pageant, an adaptation of the Wakefield Cycle play, The Second Shepherd’s Play.  The nativity play is adapted and modernized by Barry Eitel, the founder of Open Source Theatre Project, and is directed by co-founder Eileen Tull.  The show runs December 10-12, with one preview on Thursday, December 9th.

Eitel brings a unique wit and humor to the piece, making the medieval script feel fresh and relatable.  The adaptation draws inspiration from many sources, most notably from the classic television special, A Charlie Brown Christmas.  On one very special night in Bethlehem, shepherds, thieves, sheep, and angels collide among candy canes and snowballs.


Performance Dates—Preview: December 9th. Performances: December 10th-12th. All performances are at 8 PM.

Admission is free, donations are appreciated

Performances are held at the Historic Logan Square Comfort Station (2595 N Milwaukee Ave, across from the Illinois Centennial Monument)
