Twenty Club to stage fun play on seasonal theme

* A scene from the Flint Street Nativity to be staged this week.

The Twenty Club Amateur Players of Llangollen are performing The Flint Street Nativity from Thursday-Saturday (November 22-24) at the Town hall this week.

It's an hilarious comedy written by Tim Firth of Calendar Girls fame.

Mizzis Horrocks' class of seven and eight year olds is about to perform their nativity play at Flint Street Junior School for the proud mums and dads - and the occasional social worker.

Squabbles arise when Gabriel wants to play Mary, the Star grumbles he's not a proper star like they have at NASA, Herod won't stop waving to his mum and dad and the subversive Innkeeper is determined to liven up the traditional script. And then the stick insect escapes ...

The children are played by adults, who later play their parents so the set changes accordingly to reflect the difference in scale.

It’s an ideal alternative to the usual Christmas fare with original lyrics set to the tunes of the usual Christmas carols.

It was first performed to critical acclaim at the Liverpool Playhouse.

Director John Clifford said: "The performances promise to be of an excellent standard, as expected from The Twenty Club.”

* Performances begin at 7.30pm each evening and tickets, at £8 and £6 concessions, are available from Courtyard Books, Gwyn Davies butchers, Jenni's or Mair Bowen on 01978 822759, or via
