'The Doubter's Mysteries' are an attempt to write a short cycle of Mystery Plays - ie. plays based on Bible stories, like the Medieval Mystery Plays of York, Chester and Wakefield - from the point of view of a sceptical modern audience; an audience which either doesn't believe in God, or can't work out what he's playing at.

There are fourteen of these plays, and the ninth is now online: 'The Nativity of Jesus'.

(This one's funny, by the way, so it's not as inappropriate for the forum as some of the others.)
