CHRISTMAS

Sold out

A week before Christmas Eve in a pub in the heart of London's East End, four men confront their past and brace themselves for an uncertain future.

While pub landlord Michael prepares for the Christmas rush, Billy comes to terms with his mother's newly-developed dope habit, Charlie plans to celebrate by having a bath and Seppo, well, Seppo just wants to get drunk.

But this is not just your average night down the local – one of them has a secret he cannot share?

Each performance also features four mystery performers in cameo roles, from: Marc Bolton, Ralph Brown, Matt Devitt, Mark Enticknap, Anthony Ingram, Steve Kennedy, James Lance and Steve Speirs.
