A tale as old as time, imagined anew

By John Hartoch
Directed by Nik Partridge

What makes us tell stories? And where do our stories come from? Some of those stories feel as new as the dew on a fresh Spring morning, some as old and comforting as a Winter night by a warm fire.

And perhaps the most famous of all those Winter stories is the Nativity.

A starry night, three Kings, and a very famous baby….

The Donkey, the Dog and the Camel meet once a year to tell the tale. The tale they keep alive. The tale that keeps them alive.

Dog remembers his time with the shepherds; Camel, his time with the Wise Men. But most of all, this is the Donkey’s tale…

Expect wonder, humour, music, magic and festive cheer in in this tale as old as time, imagined anew by the students at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.

Suitable for ages 5+

As a student, the most important aspect of a course is putting into practice what you've been learning, and we do that constantly. I cannot recommend BOVTS enough - my showreel has never looked better! April Storm Perry, MA Screen Acting Student
