ANOTHER NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
It’s Christmas Eve and for Karol, a 30-something, overworked and underpaid social worker, the Festive Season can’t be over soon enough! To her, this time of year is full of over-indulgence, over priced everything and unfulfilled hopes and wishes. Walking home from her office party she meets a scraggly-bearded ‘homeless’ man to whom she gives her bag of leftover office party food. Thinking nothing more of it, she settles in for her ‘non’ Christmas Eve for one – a truly peaceful and silent night. However like the best laid plans they are rudely interrupted when the man from earlier appears in her flat . But who is he, a half-crazed burglar as she believes? Or could Santa Claus really have come to town?
Another Night Before Christmas has book and lyrics by Sean Grennan and music by Leah Okimoto.This UK premiere production is directed by Guy Retallack.
