Grown-up na­tiv­ity with funny twist

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON SHOW -

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.

Tick­ets are £12 (£10 concs) and can be booked by go­ing to www. berkham­stedarts­cen­tre.co.uk/ book­ing.php.
