A Poetic Oratorio by W.H. Auden
Adapted & Directed by Claire Willett
“The violent howling of winter and war has become like a juke-box tune that we dare not stop . . .”

Written in 1942, “For the Time Being” is a poetic oratorio by British poet W.H. Auden that uproots a set of familiar characters – Mary, Joseph, Herod, shepherds and magi – from Roman-occupied Palestine to midcentury Europe. Auden’s signature dry wit, compassion, and luminous, exhilarating language come together to tell a uniquely timeless story about fear, faith, politics, love, the search for meaning, and life during wartime.
