The Story of Cinderella

Please leave the ‘Christ’ in Christmas

Many people have seen this drama already, but I don’t know who wrote it. Do you?

I think it circulated around the Women’s Guild at one time, but I first saw it at a concert in Heddon-on-the-Wall near Newcastle, and I was helpless laughing at it. I am going to use it at a Carol Concert shortly to show how Jesus, it seems, is being taken right out of the picture when it come to Christmas, just like Cinderella being banished to the kitchen.
