Night Before Christmas

Performance Dates

As the holiday season rapidly explodes into red-nosed Santas, singing angels, and frosty snowmen, Theater Alliance delivers “a wicked little comedy to warm the cockles of your heart.” (The Guardian) Scottish playwright Anthony Neilson pens this darkly hilarious adult holiday play. Late on Christmas Eve, a burglar is caught breaking into a London warehouse. He claims to work for the “International Gift Distribution Agency” as an...elf. Hijinks ensue as they wait for the police to arrive. During the 2011-2012 Hothouse on H Street Reading Series, Theater Alliance hosted a highly successful reading of this “smutty, dangerously funny, but warm-hearted cri-de-coeur against the Christmas Industry.” (The Stage)
