The Night Before Christmas (2019)

Written by Anthony Neilson

Directed by Robert Laycock

He’s an employee of an International Gift Distribution Agency.

It is the night before Christmas, and while children across the country dream greedily of a fat man visiting them with presents, and parents lie awake completing remortgaging the house, a particularly festive intruder is discovered breaking into a lonely warehouse. The clock starts ticking for this elf-like individual, as he tries to convince the kidnappers of his Yuletide credentials, but is he all that he says he is? As snow falls gently over the city, and the wind carries sounds of banal office parties, Gary and Simon work to discover the truth. Is their captive truly Santa's helper, a narcotic junkie or just maybe both…
