For two nights in December, a free play will show Sweet Home community members a side of the Christmas story they may not have considered much: that of the innkeepers who took in Mary and Joseph. What's more, the play will showcase all Sweet Home talent. From the playbook, to the music, to the cast and even down to the sets, it's all locally made.
The idea started with author Satina Tolman, who began developing the story several years ago.
"I always wondered what this innkeeper was like," Tolman said. "A lot of the art I've seen depicting him, he looks grumpy and not very kind."
