Did you overdose on turkey and goodwill back in December?  Did you mutter ‘humbug’ as you watched yet another version of ‘A Christmas Carol’?  Did you resolve – yet again – to leave the country for Christmas?  Well, instead of adding yet more holly and snowflakes to the Christmas theatre offerings, we decided to wait until you had forgotten all about it, then remind you – but in a far from traditional way!

Rather than performing Charles Dickens’ beloved holiday classic for the umpteenth time, three actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told – plus Christmas traditions from around the world, seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop-culture and every carol ever sung.  A fast-paced romp through the festive season.  If you liked ‘The Reduced Shakespeare’ you’ll love this!
