Flint Street Nativity Nov 2015

Festive Flint Street fun

Tim Firth 'feel-good' comedy hits the stage next month 

We're delighted to bring you The Flint Street Nativity as our November production.

We can assure you that it will get you laughing and stir some memories of the dramas and traumas behind putting on a primary school nativity play. 

The Flint Street Nativity Nov 2015It is written by Tim Firth, the playwright who brought us the smash-hit stage comedy Calendar Girls - so you KNOW it's going to be fun.

The Flint Street Nativity began life as a 1999 television comedy, with a cast that included Jane Horrocks, Josie Lawrence, Frank Skinner, Neil Morrissey, Stephen Tompkinson, Mark Addy, Ralf Little and John Thomson.

The stories of mishaps, misunderstandings, playground rivalries and squabbles that unfold as a group of seven and eight-year-olds (played by adult actors) stage a nativity play are based on real events collected over ten years from members of Tim Firth's family and friends who were teachers. Flint Street Primary School is said to be modelled on the primary school that Tim attended and where his mother taught.

The Flint Street Nativity will run from Monday November 9 to Saturday November 14 at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. Tickets are £10, with £9 concessions available Monday to Wednesday. All matinee tickets will be £9.

You can book your seats online - with no additional booking or admin fee - from or in person at the Brewhouse box office, or by telephoning the box office on 01283 508100.

If any members, youth members friends and family would like to volunteer to sell programmes during this, or future, show weeks, please contact committee member Kay St Clair on There will be a raffle held in the cafe bar each night of The Flint Street Nativity to raise funds for future productions.

More comedy lined up for 2016

Bouncers by John Godber is our March play

Bouncers by Little Theatre CompanyOur March play will be the award-winning, fast and furious John Godber comedy Bouncers, which shows us a typical night out on the tiles through the eyes of four doormen: Eric, Judd, Les and Ralph.

First performed in 1984 it has consistently been one of the most popular plays in the UK ever since.

The four actors play multiple roles: girls and guys on their nights out as well as DJs, hairdressers and sundry other characters.

John Godber himself said: "The central theme of Bouncers is universal: men after beer after women, and the beat goes on."

We will be presenting Bouncers from Tuesday March 8 to Saturday March 12 at 7.30pm each night, plus a Saturday matinee. Tickets will be £10 concessions with £9 concessions available Tuesday to Thursday only.
