Pages: 24 pgs
Cast: 3 m, 3 w, 1 flexible, extras.

The host of a television talk show investigates the recent birth of a King. She interviews several people, all of whom give her insight into the nativity of the new King of the Jews, and at the same time, display prejudices - theirs and ours - against those who are different. Her guests include a gossip, who looks down on the pregnant Mary; unsympathetic officials; a greedy business owner; a selfish, materialistic guest; and an Egyptian who feels threatened by asylum-seekers. At the end, the TV guests return to the stage and argue that the host made them look bad because she exposed them. Their excuse is, "If we had only known it was Him...." About 35 minutes.
