A Live Theatre Production 
Written by Tamsin Daisy Rees, Olivia Hannah, Henry Lawrence, and Jamie Morren
Directed by Joe Douglas & Graeme Thompson

A city at Christmas. A time of happiness and joy. But look a little closer behind the advent calender door and there is a world of festive stories untold. 

This December, Live Theatre’s Associate Artists take us on a journey through all things Christmas with a wry, funny and alternative look at the festive period.  Four tales of Christmas present look at what happens when a drunken Santa gate-crashes a Christmas get-together, when the festive TV schedule takes over your life, the secret lives of four siblings are unwrapped, and when all that stands between one family and Christmas heart break is a pigeon in a chip box.

Expect laughter, turkey, tears and sarcasm. Four plays by four writers celebrating this special time of year. The perfect Christmas boxset. 

Tamsin Daisy-Rees, Olivia Hannah, Henry Lawrence, and Jamie Morren are all playwrights based in the North East and were discovered through Live Theatre’s artist development programme.
