Away in a manger, no crib for a bed... Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. A donkey, a camel and a new born lamb. A tiny baby, wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a makeshift bed in a dilapidated farmyard outbuilding. But enough about what Stu's bought Howard for Christmas. With the usual mix of silly songs, pitiful puppetry and more Biblical befuddlement than you can shake a figgy pudding at, Living Spit's Nativity promises to be a cornucopia of Christmassy comedy that you'll never forget!
After their triumphant take on Frankenstein and A Christmas Carol, Howard and Stu are back to tackle the second greatest Christmas story ever told. Yes, that's right folks, Living Spit are doing the NATIVITY!
Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There's no escaping that. Stu McLoghlin doesn't really look like any of the wives, but he's going to give it a go. After their previous self-funded two-man historical drama is savaged in the press, Howard (Treasure Island) and Stu (Swallows and Amazons, Kneehigh's The Wild Bride) are at their wits' end. Then they hit upon an idea for a show that could change everything... But can two of Bristol's favourite theatrical sons put aside their differences and make it through to the end without killing each other? This promises to be an ill-researched lesson in cross-dressing Tudor history that you'll never forget.
Wrapped up in a snowy smother, Grandnonny Des and her Bear man fall in love. But that is just the beginning of the story. When the storm comes and Des's Bear man disappears, how will she cope alone on a hill plagued with nothing but bad weather and a cloud of hungry crows for company? This is a love story. This is story of castles in the air, of weathering the storm, and dreams coming true in the most unexpected ways.
