Grown-up nativity with funny twist
FUNNY festive play will be coming to a theatre during December in time for the Christmas season.
The Flint Street Nativity, by Tim Firth, will be performed at the Espinosa Centre in Berkhamsted.
It is the story of Miss Horrock’s class of seven-year-olds who are about to perform their nativity play at Flint Street Junior School for the proud mums and dads.
Squabbles arise when Gabriel wants to play Mary, the Star grumbles he’s not a proper star like they have at NASA, Herod won’t stop waving to his mum and dad and the subversive Innkeeper is determined to liven up the traditional script.
All the children are played by adult actors, who later also take on the roles of their parents.
It is described as a warm, witty and funny play which is an ideal
Aalternative to the usual Christmas fayre with original lyrics set to the tunes of well-known Christmas carols.
The show will take place from December 11 until December 13 with performances at 7.30pm and a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.
