InSite will present a reading of “The Second Shepherds Play,” at 6:30 p.m. Friday at University Baptist Church, 1701 Dutton Ave.

The reading is a modern adaptation with music of a hilarious 500-year-old nativity play, the kind that Shakespeare might have seen as a boy.

This is a work-in-progress presentation as InSite develops this and other biblical plays from the same era into a full-length production for Christmas next year.

The play is about an hour long and is intended for ages 8 and up. Admission is free, but donations are welcome for the church’s work with Cesar Chavez Middle School. Visit for more information.
