Common Boots Theatre returns to outdoor winter theatre with Martha Ross’s award-winning THE STORY, presented in association with Soulpepper Theatre as part of their annual Family Festival, December 11-30, 2017 at Christie Pits Park.

With hope and humour, THE STORY imagines the nativity as a parable for modern times. The audience follows three wise men as they navigate a complicated world of existential shepherds, imperial soldiers, charming thieves, a bumbling angel, a deranged tyrant, and a lost choir. They are all in search of a headstrong young woman, and her baby born in a trash heap, hiding out in Christie Pits.
