Stephen Vincent Benet's modern miracle play was specially written for Cavalcade in 1942 and was repeated again with different actors in 1943 because it was widely acclaimed as a drama with great power and, because it uniquely relates to a war torn world, the timeless story of the Christmas birth in Judea.
The play is introduced by William Rose Benet, brother of the late Stephen Vincent Benet.
