Christmas at the White Bear Theatre

 

The White Bear Theatre cordially invite you and all the Kennington Companions to our production of Christmas by acclaimed UK playwright Simon Stephens, playing 25 November - 20 December. We would be very grateful if you could list this show on your website. We hope to see you at a performance soon.

 “A scathingly humorous hidden gem by acclaimed playwright Simon Stephens, Christmas explores the lives and obsessions of four souls in the city…”
 
2003. A week before Christmas in an East-End pub, hard–bitten landlord Michael Macraw awaits the arrival of his customers. In comes local misfit Billy–Lee Russell, local barber Guissepe Rossi and a series of mysterious punters performing magic tricks. Last of all comes Charlie Anderson: ex-classical-musician-turned-postman who seeks to unearth the regulars’ deepest secrets. As the evening progresses and the drink flows it emerges that one of them has a secret he dare not share…
 
A hidden gem by acclaimed playwright Simon Stephens, revived by Spellbound Productions and The White Bear Theatre, Christmas explores the lives and obsessions of four souls in the city as they confront their pasts and prepare for their futures. It is the story of hope, disappointment, the abandonment of dreams and the need to move on and face what is ahead.
