The Flint Street Nativity by Tim Firth
7 to 14 December 2019
This hilarious comedy takes us into the world of the school nativity play. We meet two girls fighting over the role of Mary; a screamingly funny innkeeper; and the boy who has a unique method of judging women’s ages! What makes this seasonal play even funnier is that all the children are played by adults! The classroom antics backstage at Flint Street Primary School’s nativity play are awash with jealousies, teasing, blackmail, unrequited love and of course, Christmas carols as only children know how. A perfect preparation for Christmas!
This warm, witty, funny play is an ideal alternative to the usual Christmas fare with original lyrics set to the tunes of the usual Christmas carols. It was first performed to critical acclaim at the Liverpool Playhouse.
The Flint Street Nativity is written by local Cheshire writer Tim Firth, author of Calendar Girls and Kinky Boots.
Auditions: 4 July. 7:30pm.
