by BERT V. ROYAL

Directed by Christina Christopher 

When CB's dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of this group's bullying, offers CB peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful.

All Welcome.

THE FLINT STREET NATIVITY

Written by Tim Firth

Directed by Annie Whittaker

SEASON: 8th – 30th NOVEMBER 2019

Mizzus Horrocks’ class of seven year olds is about to perform their play at Flint Street Junior School for their proud mums and dads (and the odd social worker).  Squabbles arise when Gabriel wants to play Mary, the Star grumbles that his star doesn’t look like one from NASA, Herod is more interested in waving to his mum and dad and the Innkeeper is determined to liven up the script.  And then the class pet escapes …

 

The kids are played by adults and morph into their parents in the final scene. 

This is a charming, warmly funny play with the total honesty that you get from children shining out from the delightful characters.  As Alfred Hickling from the Guardian noted when the play premiered in Liverpool in 2006 – “Exposes what an ungodly snake pit of paediatric power-politics the staging of your average nativity play can be … there are moments when you may wet yourself laughing”.

Some singing of Christmas carols happen throughout the play but fabulous singing is not required unless specified.

The Flint Street Nativity is based on the original television movie from 1996.  It was adapted for the stage by Tim Firth in 2006 when the Christmas carols were added.

Characters 

Female characters:

  • Mary: Mary is the class teacher’s pet and likes to organize everyone and everything.  Mary is a good singer.  Her mum is 35-45.

  • Wise Gold: Wise Gold is the sensitive girl bossed about by Gabriel. 

  • Angel: Angel is from a traditional family from the Indian sub-continent.  Her mum is 30s and very glamorous.

  • Gabriel: Gabriel desperately wants to play Mary but the role has already been cast.  Gabriel’s mum is a young 20 something.

  • Shepherd: Shepherd is the class member who blurts out the blunt truth.  She is the Innkeeper’s twin sister.  Shepherd’s mum is in her late 30s and a farmer.

Male characters:

  • Innkeeper: Innkeeper is a pretty staunch little dude – very much like his twin sister.  Innkeeper’s dad is the Mayor of their town.

  • Star: Star desperately wants to be an astronaut and knows everything about NASA where his “Uncle Ted” works. 

  • Ass: Ass is self confident and not bothered by other people’s opinions.  His dad likes to play Santa.

  • Narrator: Narrator desperately tries to keep things moving along during the performance while anarchy reigns behind him.

  • Herod/Joseph: H/J is sports obsessed and his favourite game is based on a quiz show for sports.  H/J’s dad is 30’s-40s, loves golf and wears a Bluetooth phone earpiece.

  • Wise Frankencence: Frank has a lisp and is new to the play.  His dad is 30s-40s in a smart suit.

 

Ages are general only and we will adjust to fit.
