This Is Not A Christmas PartyEncompass Productions presents THIS IS NOT A CHRISTMAS PLAY by Robert Wallis & Liam Fleming

9th December 2014 to 4th January 2015 at Top Secret Comedy Club, Covent Garden – London

The world premiere of This is Not a Christmas Play comes to the Top Secret Comedy Club, Drury Lane for a limited four week season from 9th December 2014. A farcical tribute to the festive season without shoving eggnog down your throat, this is the ultimate alternative Christmas story! “Home invasion, the Virgin Mary and Chinese food. The Holy Trinity of Christmas.” It’s Christmas Day, but David refuses to acknowledge it. Along with his best friend and professional layabout Tim he is on a mission to win his ex-girlfriend back, but will she even show-up? As an amusing assortment of strange characters turn up at their door, the pair soon discovers that turkey isn’t the only thing on the menu… This is Not a Christmas Play is a story about friendship on the most famous day of the year but without all the clichés of the Christmas season. Funny and heartfelt, the play takes us through a few hours in the life of one stressed individual and his well- meaning friend as Christmas is forced upon them in more ways than one!
