Synopsis

The Devil steals the moon and plunges the town of Halesworth into chaos, and only the Blacksmith can save it – but rescuing the moon from The Devil isn’t as easy as it sounds… Tis was a festive comedy about facing your demons. Literally. Based on Nikolai Gogol’s ‘The Night Before Christmas’.

Written and adapted by Anthony Cule (The Bricks of Burston) and brought to life by a talented cast of seven actors this fabulous, family friendly production delighted and entertained the Halesworth community from December 2015 to January 2016.
