The Last Noel (Paperback)Chris Bush (author)
- We can order this
It's Christmas Day, sort of, and Alice, Mike and Tess - three generations of the one family - are busy preparing a feast, singing songs, spinning yarns and squabbling about snacks... like only a close family can. But someone is missing from the table.
Telling their stories in turns, and breaking off for the odd musical interlude, the family pass the time waiting for Tess's mum to arrive. As they do, we see a picture of how one family forms its traditions - and how those traditions matter most when there are problems on the horizon.
The Last Noel captures the unique bonds of family and how coming together to share stories and a meal can be a modern Christmas miracle.
It was first produced in 2019 by Attic Theatre Company and Arts at the Old Fire Station on a tour of venues around London, before a Christmas run at the Old Fire Station in Oxford.

"Chris Bush's beautifully crafted show is comforting and uplifting with just enough kick for those who find festive theatre too saccharine." --Guardian
