1647. Celebrating Christmas is banned. Carols are criminal. Turkey’s taboo. But we don’t give a figgy pudding.
A riotous musical comedy that takes audiences back to 1647, as a motley troupe of rebellious performers host a secret, late-night Christmas party against the backdrop of Puritan bans on theatres and Christmas festivities. Carols are criminal. Turkey’s taboo. Banquets are banished and stage-plays prohibited. In fact, festivities of any kind are quite frankly forbidden. Sound familiar?
At the Undercover Christmas Club, misrule and mayhem are on the menu. Hidden away from prying eyes, the troupe present a feast of theatrical yuletide treats. Full to the brim with live music, tall tales and belly laughs, our show immerses the audience in a world of folklore, song, and of course, good old festive fun. Join us under the cover of night as we frolic without fear and revel in rebellion. After all, ‘tis the season to be jolly.
The performance is approx 60 mins with no interval.
Recommended for audiences aged 14+ (some strong language and sexual references)
