Raymond Briggs' Father ChristmasReturning to the Lyric for a sixth Christmas run after five years of sell-out success, Raymond Briggs' famous Christmas story returns to the smallest stage of the Hammersmith theatre in 2017. Pins And Needles' festive stage adaptation is based on the book created by the London-born author and illustrator in 1973. Briggs' Father Christmas is as enchanting as it was 40 years ago, portraying Santa as a rather grumpy, discontented figure. In this adaptation the popular children's tale is told using puppet theatre and live music to create a wonderful seasonal outing for those under 6. Barry McCarthy, who plays the lead as, "a homely, flesh and blood old chap who snores, feels cold, goes to the loo..." (The Stage), reprises his role as Father Christmas.

 

About Lyric Hammersmith

Frank Matcham's velvet and gilt theatre was saved from demolition - following a public outcry - by being carefully dismantled, moved from its location further down King Street and then rehoused on its current site. As a consequence, the Lyric Hammersmith's gorgeous Victorian auditorium is housed in a severely utlitarian concrete cube, above Kings Mall shopping centre. More about Lyric Hammersmith
