Abigail Maureen Margaret-Rose Davis was the very best singer to ever grace the stage in Belbin’s Bight, Newfoundland. But this year, young Abigail would have to perform in her Christmas concert without her beloved Nan in the audience. Then Amira, a child from a faraway land, is introduced to the community, and, together with Amira, Abigail will learn the true spirit of the holidays. In Shiny and New, acclaimed writer Robert Chafe crafts an instant modern-day classic for children and parents alike, reaffirming the traditional values of the season in a thoroughly contemporary setting.
