The Shepherd’s Play

December 23, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

The public is invited to attend a traditional Oberufer Shepherd’s Play on Sunday, December 23 at 3:30 p.m. in Camphill Ghent’s Culture Hall. The performance is free. The play will be performed by Camphill Ghent residents and staff and is an annual tradition to celebrate the Christmas holiday.

The roots of the Oberufer plays are lost in medieval times, but have evolved to incorporate a unique mix of broad peasant humor and deep reverence in their celebration of the birth of Jesus. The Shepherd’s Play is one of many religious plays started on the island of Oberufer near the border of Austria and Hungary in the 16th century.
