WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Thomas Minge (Andrew Schofield) owns a small, dilapidated warehouse in Liverpool. He despises everything - happiness, laughter, modern music, spending money - but most of all he hates Christmas. Meanwhile, his four drunken, dysfunctional employees can't wait to start the festive season! When they find out they're about to be sacked by their miserable employer they set out to discover a way to ensure their survival. They soon uncover a few 1970's skeletons in Thomas's dirty closet, including old platform shoes, a load of Viagra and the mysterious Hairy Mary! The arrival of a weird deranged tramp ensures some crazy festive hilarity! What is Thomas Minge's secret? What is he hiding? Why does he hate Christmas so much? Why does he regularly swill carol singers? Will the workers escape the sack? Perhaps the legendary Walrus of Love himself, Barry White, holds the key.
Described as a 'Scouse Scrooge' comedy play and crammed full with original classic hits from soul legend Barry White including 'Love's Theme', 'Can't Get enough of your Love Babe' and 'It May Be Winter Outside' plus other huge 70's numbers, Dreaming of a Barry White Christmas is the coolest and funniest comedy of the season! Age range: 16+
