SkyPilot Theatre Company
presents the World Premiere of
written and directed by Jeff Goode
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Bethlehem!
Jesus Christ was a child star who quickly faded into obscurity. And everyone involved in his Nativity saw their lives fall into ruin—from the Orient King who gave away all his gold, to the Talking Sheep who was forced to join a circus freak show, to the alcoholic Angel whose media blitz fell apart when the newborn king and his family fled into divine witness protection. Now, 30 years after his birth, the Ghosts of Nativities Past converge on Bethlehem to teach Jesus Christ the true meaning of Christmas.
CHRISTMAS 2 is a hysterical World Premiere comedy by Jeff Goode, SkyPilot Theatre Company’s Senior Resident Playwright and the author of the smash hit Christmas play, THE EIGHT: REINDEER MONOLOGUES, which has had over 500 productions worldwide. He also penned SkyPilot’s 2011 critically acclaimed THE EMANCIPATION OF ALABASTER MCGILL and 2010’s YES SVETLANA, THERE IS A GRANDFATHER FROST. In 2014, SkyPilot will produce his new play FURSONA NON GRATA, the first ever full-length “Furry” play. For television, he created Disney’s AMERICAN DRAGON: JAKE LONG and is currently writing for LALAOOPSY for Nick Jr. For his complete bio and resume, go to www.jeffgoode.com.
