Kimpton Players staging Flint Street Nativity
PUBLISHED: 10:07 23 October 2011
A CHILDREN’S view of the world as they put on their annual nativity play is observed by The Kimpton Players in its latest production next week.
The Flint Street Nativity, written by Tim Firth, creator of The Calendar Girls, wittily and acutely observes the children’s view of the world, especially in their rendition of traditional carols.
All the usual performance triumphs and disasters are there – costume malfunctions, casting issues, stage fright – and even the class pet makes an appearance.
The “children” are played by adults who later play the parents of the cast of the nativity.
The Flint Street Nativity is being performed at Kimpton Memorial Hall from next Thursday to Saturday, October 27 to 29, at Kimpton Memorial Hall.
Performances start at 8pm and tickets are £6 on Thursday and £8 on Friday and Saturday, available from the box office on 01438 832542.
