Festive tale’s not as you know it

Have your say

Nativity Blues is a contemporary and multi-cultural version of the medieval Joyful Mysteries, written especially for Peterborough, and being performed at The Undercroft in the Serpentine Green Shopping Centre in Hampton.

Fleeing their war-torn home, Miriam and Josef have arrived in Peterborough in search of peace but there’s nowhere to stay and the baby is due!

On the edge of giving up hope they find help in unexpected hearts and safety in Serpentine Green.

With a cast of pigeons, angels and ordinary folk this modern retelling of the nativity opens its arms to all people and all their beliefs.

This retelling of the nativity story will be performed in an unique pop-up theatre, which will turn the basement of Serpentine Green shopping centre into a special one-off venue.

Eastern Angles will also be teaming up with Castor Ales with a pop-up real ale bar and an art exhibition by Peterborough Open Art Studios, so that the audiences can drink in style!

Eastern Angles other Peterborough work has included, ‘Our Nobby’, ‘Parkway Dreams’ and ‘Dark Earth’.

Nativity Blues, a new play written by Danusia Iwaszko, directed by Poppy Rowley, will be staged from November 11 to 21 at 7:30pm. Book your tickets through the Box Office on 01473 211498 or www.easternangles.co.uk or pay on the door. Tickets cost £10 and £5 concession
