'The Nativity' is Tony Jordan's unique take on the story of the Nativity. It explores the troubled times of turn of the millennium Judea, bringing legend to vibrant life, but rooting the action in a world we can all recognise and understand. The tyranny of Herod, search of the Magi, and the earthy troubles of the lowly shepherds are all explored. It's visually stunning, rendering beautifully a classic tale we might think we all know well, but revealing that behind the traditional, there is a universal, and very human, story.
A story of two people, a young, scared girl with a momentous role in history and the kind man who loves her, but struggles to accept his own role in the greatest story ever told.
