Karl König's plays for the festivals of the year are arguably his most original creations. Written to be performed in Camphill communities, they show a deep understanding of the Christian festivals. With one exception, all fourteen plays were written during the early years of the Camphill movement, and it was König's hope that their performance would help bring communities together. Not only is their content entertaining and informative, but the act of performing also provides great benefits as social therapy.

Since they were written, these plays have been translated into many languages and performed in Camphill and other communities around the world. This is the first time that the original texts of all the plays have been published in a single volume. They are presented with an introduction and commentary by series editor Richard Steel, alongside fascinating performance photographs.
