Santa, Baby
Budding Theatre presents
Santa, Baby

16 Dec 2016 to 17 Dec 2016

From cheeky comedy to thoughtful drama, there’s something for everyone in Santa, Baby – a collection of short Christmas plays written by Canberra playwrights.

Kate Roediger reimagines the story of Jesus’ birth in the context of contemporary politics in Mother and Child; Greg Gould details a post-Christmas party STI check in his comedy Statistically Speaking; Frances McNair presents a 1940s noir bar scene featuring Santa and other folklore characters in pun-filled Christmas Cheers; Zoe Swan explores loss and memory in Gingerbread or Smarties; Kirsty Budding depicts fashion-conscious reindeer trying to win Santa’s heart in Reindeer in Red; Harriet Elvin delivers a seasonal tribute to Monty Python’s Four Yorkshireman sketch in Christmas in Yorkshire; Adele Lewin and Nigel Palfreman show what happens to our forgotten Christmas fairy in The Christmas Fairy; Bronwyn Vanzino explores Christmas isolation and kindness in Xmas Is What You Make It; and Judith Peterson depicts God on a book tour in quirky comedy Not What You Expected.

Featuring songs, angels and a visit from Santa, this is a Christmas event not to be missed!

Profits will be donated to wildlife conservation charity The Thin Green Line Foundation.
