It’s not sophisticated, and it is definitely not slick, but Chris Bush’s Christmas themed family drama offers emotional truth as well as seasonal cheer. Produced by Attic, the show is touring South London libraries and non-theatre spaces, and it gets to the heart of family traditions, resentments and how change affects us all. It’s rough and ready but that makes it all the more unexpectedly moving, and Matt Winkworth’s songs and arrangements are just glorious.
It’s 25 December. Three generations of a family are busy preparing a feast, and you’re invited. But someone is missing from the table. The Last Noël is a funny, moving and uplifting play with live music and original songs by award-winning writer Chris Bush. Make this a Christmas you’ll never forget. Age Recommendation: 12+ Chris Bush’s award winning work includes The Assassination of Katie Hopkins (Theatr Clywd), Standing at the Sky’s Edge with Richard Hawley (Sheffield Crucible) and Pericles (National Theatre). Following the success of The Rebellious Women of Wimbledon, Attic are delighted to present the world premiere of our new show for all generations in South West London and Oxford.
