i was looking for a link to an alternative nativity story but it seem like the links are dead.
so i've come up with my all updated 21st century urban neo-nativity cast list:

scene: under a lowly railway bridge somewhere in london/rio de janero/moscow

mary: a mixed race single mum befriended by
joe: a kindly (wood) sculptor on the razz who took her under his wing because the nightbuses were on strike
the three wise men: three homeless people (2 men and one woman)
the star in the sky: a near earth asteroid grazing the earth's atmosphere.
the animals: the wise woman's dog, a curious rat, a passing fox and an inscrutible black cat that stared intently upon the unlikely scene.
angels: paramedics
shepherds: cops.

obviously, it needs filling out and there's a great deal of suspension of disbelief involved,
eg why didn't joe just use his mobile to call a ambulance?,
but hey, that's religion for you.
