A Show for Christmas

Last year, I wrote and performed a Christmas Show called – quite brilliantly – A Show For Christmas. I didn’t know what it was going to be when I agreed to do it (you can read the deliberately vague blurb in the archive - here) but I ended up really liking how it turned out and having only booked a five night run at the Battersea Arts Centre in the now defunct Grand Hall , I was always keen to do it again this year and So, as you may have guessed by now, I am bringing it to New York this Christmas and specifically to the Connelly Theatre in the East Village.

 

The show itself is a simple storytelling affair that is, if you’ll forgive me for saying so, pretty enchanting and deals, amongst other things, with the traditional seasonal concerns of loneliness, a brief scuffle in a newsagents, mobile phones, magic, the past and a long journey in a mid sized motorhome*.

 

 I mean. It's long been my vibe to charmingly undersell things, as you doubtless know, but I reread it last week to see if I needed to change anything and I actually REALLY enjoyed it.

 

I think it's really good.

 

So. There you go.
