The Makey Uppers present

Alternative Christmas Stories

 

A Christmas antidote for grown-upswith all the seasons’ favourites. A Panto Nativity, an alternative carolservice, the Krampus, a wandering babushka, and Christmas like you’ve neverexperienced it before. The comedy storytellers delve into the furthestrecesses of the festive season from across the world, find strange and familiartraditions, and give them the skew-whiffed MakeyUpper makeover to bring you a hilariously irreverent show with humour and horror in equal measure.

From the people who brought you ‘Alternative Bedtime Stories’, this is festive foolery not for the faint ofh eart.

(Contains strong language & adultthemes)

 

Running Time: c. 60 mins (nointerval)
