From a trollop-laden Victorian farce, to the state of Australian television, to a modern ‘meet the parents’ piece – The Alternative Christmas Party is an evening of original comedy one-act plays and sketches for the mince pie weary.
There will be absolutely, categorically, unquestionably and indisputably no mention of Christmas whatsoever. None. Nothing. Not even a bit of tinsel. Nada navidad. Although the first play is set at Christmas time and the following six sketches all mention Christmas. There is the chorus of irritable carol singers and the last one-act play is called Ado at Christmas. Which is quite Christmas-y. In fact it’s very Christmas-y. OK, it’s really very very Christmas-y!
