Such a familiar tale

Our 2019 Nativity Production


Written by Kim Durham

Directed by Jenny Stephens

Such a familiar tale – yet so strange and full of wonder. A young woman is expecting, three magi are researching the heavens and two shepherd children are bored out of their heads minding the sheep – well nothing interesting ever happens around Bethlehem in December, does it?! Wise men (and not so wise men), talking sheep, angels, a shepherd family, camels, a horrible Herod, and carols (old and new) all go to make up a magical retelling of the story of the first Christmas.


We’re also touring this Nativity production around local schools – if you are interested in this, get in touch with us via [email protected]


I find it immensely satisfying passing on the baton and continuing the culture of generosity of the many people who taught me. It’s a privilege and pleasure to nurture and teach so many talented young people and see them flourish in their career. Cathy Stewart, Head of Scenic Art
