Shameless star Rebecca Atkinson, best known for playing Karen Maguire in Channel 4's gritty drama, features alongside other TV actors in The Night Before Christmas, a weird and wonderful musical alternative to the usual Christmas panto. Teachers' Navin Chowdhry and Coronation Street's Craig Gazey and Craig Kelly also star in the show which reunites the team behind Soho Theatre's Edward Gant's Amazing Feats of Loneliness and 2011's Realism. The Christmas tale opens as Gary finds out that his warehouse is being broken into but it's Christmas Eve and Gary is dressed as an elf in Anthony Neilson's reimagining of the festive fable with music composed by Tom Mills. Directed by Soho Theatre Artistic Director Steve Marmion. Not suitable under 15s.

 

About Soho Theatre

The Soho Theatre Company was formed in 1969 by Verity Bargate and Fred Proud, but it didn't have a permanent home until 2000, when its current Dean Street location opened. This modern space was the first theatre to be built with National Lottery money. More about Soho Theatre
