With the aftermath of Brexit, Theatre N16 is delighted to produce Simon Stephens Yuletide treat, directed by Theatre N16 artistic director Jamie Eastlake and associate director Sarah Chapleo, and starring Jack Bence (Sherlock, Misfits, Bad Education). You can catch it December 11th – 22nd.
One week ‘til Christmas. A bleak bar in the heart of London’s East End. Landlord Michael Macgraw is setting up for the Saturday punters – all two of them; young Billy Russell, a foul-mouthed football fan and Seppo the barber with an odd fondness for Drambuie and dreaming of Vienna. Christmas, a time for family, goodwill and peace to all men, but not for these three. They’ve barricaded themselves in for the night, and there’s only one thing on the agenda… drinking. But what will the arrival of a mysterious lone stranger mean for their sanctuary?
Theatre N16 brings you the early and rarely performed work of critically-acclaimed writer, Simon Stephens. In a play that centres on loneliness, inertia and celebrates the humility and humour of Britain’s white working class, you’ll find this Yuletide offering the perfect post-Brexit tonic.
