“For the virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a Son…and His name shall be called Jesus…”
Detectives Thomas and Bartimaeus are on the biggest case of their career. They will face more than the simple conflict that exists between differing characters. They will face a truth long prophesied, faith unparalleled, and a child unlike anyone they have ever laid eyes on.
They work for the Herod’s Bureau of Investigations (HBI), and they have been hired by Herod himself to find the Christ-child. These are two very strange characters. One is ever doubtful and the other is blind, but as detectives…they always get the job done. They travel from the East to the inn…then on to the Temple, where they will eventually meet Joseph and Mary and their child. I must warn you…they will make you laugh all the way, as Blind Bartimaeus has a way of moving around as if he can see.
This play shows the significance of Jesus’ coming by demonstrating a before-and-after scene with an adulterer that will begin and end this play.
