Most of the play deals with the efforts of three shepherds to keep a thieving scoundrel named Mak from stealing their sheep (these are the shepherds to whom the angels and the Christmas star announced the birth of Jesus). In spite of their vigilance, Mak manages to steal a lamb. The scene in which Mak and his wife, Gil, try to pass the lamb off as their newborn baby is some of the best comedy ever written. The play ends with angels greeting baby Jesus in the manger.
