The Birthday of the Unconquered Sun

“The Birthday of the Unconquered Sun,” by Shawn Pfautsch, is my favorite. Like the Ghost of Christmas Past, it reels you back to high school, where an earnest history professor encourages his students to bring Ancient Rome to life. The results? Hilarity.”   — Centerstage Chicago

The Play:


Three public high school students present their original play about the Roman-era decision to celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25, much to their teacher’s chagrin.


Four characters; 3 men, 1 woman.


 Approxomately 15 min. run time.
