Christmas Day at Kirkby Cottage is a love story—or what we would call today a “rom-com” –a Romantic Comedy—with a tone & feel of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice.”  The Christmas theme not only provides a charming background of holly & ivy, and seasonal cheer; but also forms the heart of the story.

The Shoemaker’s Gift – Audio Drama

Leo Tolstoy is best remembered for weighty masterpieces like, “War and Peace;” but Count Leo Tolstoy also wrote a large number of short stories. Of all Tolstoy’s works, perhaps the most endearing…is the story you’re about to hear.

It’s been given many titles over the years, including Tolstoy’s original: “Where Love is, There God is Also.” The video version was called, “Martin the Cobbler,” the name of the musical was, “Papa Ponoff ,”and the title for our production: “The Shoemaker’s Gift.”

Regardless of the name, this story embodies the message of the season: that the greatest gift –is the one that’s given from the heart. Celebrate the joy of the season with this Christmas classic.  Listen as Tolstoy’s Russian classic “Shoemaker Martin” comes alive!
