In this Christmas drama script, the shepherds are definitely not watching their flock. One is obsessively counting the sheep. Another is caring for virtual sheep in Sheepville. The third is foraging for rare plants. They are just too busy.
So they have no time for the shiny visitor who arrives with an important announcement. Can he make them listen? Oh, and by the way, what would you give the king who has everything?
This Christmas drama script would go down well in any church, school or other gathering at Christmas. It humorously raises the questions, what is important? What is real?
