CHRISTMAS is just around the corner - and what better way to get in the festive spirit than with a top yuletide play at Trinity Arts?
Chapterhouse Theatre Company present a lavish new production to delight all the family as the magic of a very Victorian Christmas comes alive alongside the romance and passion of love in the English countryside.
Cranford at Christmas by Laura Turner, was adapted from the novel Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell.
Deep in the frosty English countryside, chestnuts are roasting and carols are being sung as the folk of Cranford busily prepare for Christmas.
Join Miss Pole, Miss Matty and Mrs Jamieson as they warm their frozen hands on cups of steaming cocoa and bedeck the house with holly and mistletoe.
But beyond this cosy hubbub of festivity, snow continues to fall and when disaster strikes, the community must unite to keep the spirit of Christmas alive.
This is a heart-warming tale of charity and goodwill to all women and men to celebrate this most magical time of year.
The Daily Express said of the play: “Don’t miss this - it’s the perfect evening.”
Theatre Magazine The Stage said: “This confident company should be commended for their enthusiastic production.”
