The Night Before Christmas

Written by Anthony Neilson

Directed by Robert Laycock

It is the night before Christmas. All London lies in silence; with the exception of a lonely warehouse where a rather unusual intruder has been apprehended: an Elf.

Can Santa’s little helper convince Gary to let him go so he can save Christmas with his magic powder? Or is there another, less festive reason for the Elf's appearance? Could it be his "magic powder" is more of the Bolivian kind than the fairy kind? 'The Night Before Christmas' was performed at the Barons Court Theatre, between December 14 2009 and January 3rd 2010.


Daniel Souter as Gary, Jay Alwyn as Simon, Thomas Shirley as The Elf and Caroline Steiner as Cherry.
