‘There’s a reason why the girls at school made me get ‘Virgin for Life’ on the
back of my leavers’ hoody’

It’s Christmas in Billericay. The boys are back from uni, Mum’s been on the
wine and Dad’s dozing off when theres a knock at the door… This is a very
untraditional EsseXmas story.

Written by Timothy Blore and directed by Offie and Broadway World
nominated Scott Le Crass, this festive comedy is guaranteed to put you in the
holiday spirit. (Although it might be slightly more raucous than your average
Nativity play).

After delighting audiences with a staged reading at the Phoenix Artist’s Club
last Christmas, Wonderlust Theatre Company are proud to bring their first
production ALTERNATIVITY to the little theatre with big ideas.
Prepare yourselves for a not so Silent Night!
