Twisted Christmas Tales
  • UK Regional & Tours

After creating the hugely successful The Unlikely Candidate ("a fantastic blend of buffoonery and horseplay"Writebase) Liverpool's Royal Court Youth Theatre and North West End Acting School have combined for a great new festive show.

All of the best Christmas stories have a dark heart and these are no different. A collection of darkly comic tales with a Christmas theme, they will have you leaping in fright, laughing out loud and jingling your bells in excitement. If you like your fables to come with a twist then this is your perfect Christmas present.

These brand new stories have been created by members of the Youth Theatre and they are chilling, funny and true (disclaimer: they may not be true). Join us for an evening of music, laughter and shocking discovery as we peel back the wrapping paper on the true meaning of Christmas.

The show contains some strong language so we advise that it is for audience members over the age of 14.

Liverpool's Royal Court Youth Theatre is for young people aged 11 to 25. It is free to join, there is no audition required and no waiting list. Each summer the Youth Theatre produces a show on the main stage at the theatre and they are looking for cast members now. For more details call 0151 702 5892 or go towww.liverpoolsroyalcourt.com/youth-theatre/

North West End Acting School offers unique and innovative acting classes to those who are enthusiastic for acting. They provide several classes for people of different ages. Seehttps://www.northwestendactingschool.co.uk/ for more information.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
