This Christmas, The Outfit Theatre Company, in association with STAMP at THE EDGE, are delivering their Christmas present early, a raucous and riotous festive farce to help put shopping nightmares and end-of-year stresses on hold.
Let Outfit Theatre help you laugh it out in the best way possible with their latest show, A Criminal Christmas, by going where no other Kiwi Christmas farce has gone before… a rest-home.
As part of an innovative new community service rehabilitation-through-theatre scheme, a dysfunctional group of rag-tag criminals are sentenced to spend their Christmas Eve providing entertainment for the elderly residents of a financially-troubled rest home. With the slimy rest home director determined to see them fail, and the performance fast approaching, the crims must put their differences aside and join forces to create their own version of the traditional Nativity story.
Outfit Theatre, with their genre-spanning and critically acclaimed shows offer a certain style expected of an Outfit performance, boisterous, bawdy, raucous and universally-entertaining. When it comes to letting-off that end-of-year steam, this is definitely the crowd you want to party with.
The method is simple; take a setting that we’re all familiar with, load it with a powder-keg of the funniest characters possible, add a little conflict, light the match and watch as all hell breaks loose in an explosion of hilarity.
If the maddening Christmas rush gets you stressed, A Criminal Christmas is surely the best medicine, so let this rowdy bunch of gifted comedic performers distract you from your festive woes and enjoy an end of year farce so funny…. it’s Criminal!
Andrew Ford, Pete Coates, Jacqui Nauman, Chris Tempest, Colin Garlick, Gypsy Kauta, Stef Lawrence, Anoushka Klaus, Chis Neels andMick Innes
