Near-ta bring bucket loads of Christmas spirit and festive cheer to The Poly once more with their hilarious yuletide comedy.
Charlie and Toby are feeling low, and why wouldn’t they? It’s Christmas Day and they’re serving time at Her Majesty’s pleasure. But why shouldn’t they be having a Merry Christmas in spite of their incarceration? What’s stopping them from creating Christmas around them? Absolutely nothing! And so they set off on their festival of carols, Claus, Christ and custody.
Join them on a fantastical adventure through Dickens, pantomime, musical, Christmas dinner and Christmas films.
Performed by Daniel Richards and Lewis Howard, written by Daniel Richards and Ciaran Clarke, and directed by Simon Harvey, this is musical comedy for all the family – and puts the ‘cell’ firmly back in ‘celebration’!

UP THE ZAMBEZI WITHOUT A PADDLE!
Miracle deftly combines its own inimitable style with the wonder of Victorian Music Hall to tell the story of one man’s obsession to discover the heart of Africa and transform an entire continent singlehanded – AND of a woman left behind…

This entertaining expedition into unknown territories of comedy, excitement and musical gaiety will enthral audiences of all generations.
