The Stewkley Players 122nd production is……
There is nothing like a nativity play to get into the Christmas mood. From the playwright who brought us Calendar Girls (Tim Firth), Stewkley Players present The Flint Street Nativity. Mrs Horrocks’ class of seven year olds is getting ready to perform their nativity play to their proud mums and dads. What can go wrong? Gabriel really wants to play Mary and is determined to get her way, the Star grumbles he is not a real star and he should know – his Uncle Ted works for NASA, Herod is obsessed with pretend-playing TV sports quiz shows, and the innkeeper is determined to liven things up in his own way. Then the stick insect escapes….
This is a warm and funny play with parts of the storyline set to traditional carol music. The children are acted by adults who then later play their parents. Home life is reflected in the classroom – and the power politics of children looms large.
Play nights are Wednesday 20th to Saturday 23rd November.
