“OH ME, OH MY, THE LIQUID OF THE LORD HAS FALLEN!
SOON HIS SON WILL HENCEFORTH BE A’ CRAWLIN”
Off the back of their hilarious international debut The Zanniskinheads and the Quest for the Holy Balls, Slingshot Theatre focus their surreal eyes and quick-witted physical comedy onto the greatest birth documented... EVER!
Somewhere in deepest Suffolk lies the flat and technologically dated village of Creakebottom, home to the All-Male Amateur Dramatics Society of Creakebottom, aka the AMADSC! A new Arts Festival brings theatrical big-hitters from "that London" to Creakebottom's bumpy hills, handing the AMADSC an unprecedented platform for their undiscovered genius and a stage for their new production: 'The Birth of Jesus'.
The AMADSC have their work cut out to say the least: Founder Gus Blathermouth believes firmly in totalitarian leadership, Cornelius Hack is plotting a coup, Wesley Biggins’ has the backbone of a processed sausage, Stibby Blot has the IQ of a cow pat, and new recruit Michael Outwit holds a secret which could divide the thespians for good. Amidst the chaos, the players must unite to see the Christ born in Creakebottom.
This lightning-quick new comic play is performed by a cast of five over two ridiculous acts, jam packed with physical comedy, witty banter and bad acting. Christopher Dennis’ rambunctious script is directed by West-End Veteran Andrew C. Wadsworth (RSC, National Theatre) and brought to life by fantastically ridiculous songs composed by Mark Dean (Strangeface Theatre). The perfect winter warmer to kick-start Christmas, this classy comedy has proven popular for anyone over the age of 10.
