A Tucson Pastorela

After 10 years of topical rhyming couplets by Max Branscomb, A Tucson Pastorela, the play localizing and updating the story of the birth of Jesus, was itself reborn last December. Borderlands Theater hired Toni Press-Coffman to revamp the script, which was starting to seem more and more like a Gaslight spoof. The result was less outright funny than Branscomb's work, but more sophisticated in technique and more consistent in its focus on the Christmas themes of community and forgiveness.
