ONLY EIGHTY MILES TO CHRISTMAS!
A joyous cavalcade of a play by Nigel Forde
You’d think it was simple enough… one carpenter on his own, pops down to Bethlehem, registers for the census and nips back home again. No problem.
But Mary wants to come too, so they’re going to need nappies, a travel cot and even some squeaky toys, and it’s not an easy route, especially carrying an extra passenger or two. Then there’s the risk of scally-wags and ruffians, to say nothing of bumping into terrifying traffic wardens, Persian philosophers and a wildly mischievous camel called Desmond (heaven knows where he’s going!).
Luckily, Joseph plans a mad motorised marvel to remove some of the ‘donkey work’ from the trip. All that’s left is to count down the miles to Christmas… you’d think that would be simple enough!
Only 80 Miles to Christmas! is touring primary schools, churches and arts venues around the UK from 20th November to 23rd December 2013. The production lasts approximately one hour and is suitable for age five and up.
Riding Lights is a professional theatre company based at Friargate Theatre in York. The company produces new and classic plays, satirical revues, and musicals which tour to theatres and other venues, both large and small, across the country. We have been touring original, highly entertaining Christmas plays for family audiences and primary schools since 1977.
