PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

O, CHRISTMAS TREE is a short play dramatizing the origins of the song “O, Christmas Tree”. St. Boniface and a young monk are in 8th-century Germany attempting to convert the pagan Teutons to Christianity. On Christmas Eve, in the forest near Geismar, they come across a pagan chieftain and his men about to sacrifice one of their tribe at a giant oak tree — the sacred tree of the pagan god Odin. Seizing his wooden staff, St. Boniface strikes the tree down with one mighty blow and frees the victim. The Teutons are impressed by the saint’s power and immediately convert to Christianity, but bemoan the loss of their symbol, the giant oak tree. St. Boniface points to a tiny fir tree nestled among the roots of the fallen oak and tells them to take that as their symbol — the “ever green” symbol of Christ, bringer of life eternal. Playscript contains full set, stage, costume directions along with useful staging tips.
