Riddlestick Theatre present a late evening of riotous festive revelry with live music, tall tales and belly laughs – but it’s supposed to be a secret, so keep it under wraps…
England. 1647. Celebrating Christmas has been banned by those pesky Puritans. Carols are criminal. Turkey’s taboo. Banquets are banished and stage-plays prohibited. In fact, festivities of any kind are quite frankly forbidden. But we don’t give a figgy pudding.
Here at the Undercover Christmas Club, misrule and mayhem are on the menu. Hidden away from prying eyes, we present a feast of theatrical yuletide treats. Tales abound and songs a-plenty, served with a side of tomfoolery and washed down with a tankard of merriment. Join us under the cover of night as we frolic without fear and revel in rebellion. After all, ‘tis the season to be jolly.
