Western Edge Theatre is getting naughty this Christmas.
The theatre company presents Christmas Naughty and Nice at Kismet Theatre Academy Saturday (Dec. 5) at 7:30 p.m. The event, called Plays and Mince-Meat Pie, features short plays by Daniel Curzon read by Nanaimo actors. The short plays cover adult themes and content. They include Honest Christmas Presents, which looks at a family that gives unusually candid gifts. A Christmas Miracle at the Open Mess is the story of two gay army officers who wonder if they can reveal their relationship. The last is The Christmas to End All Christmases. It’s a twist on the traditional story of A Christmas Carol, but includes Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Mrs. Claus.
“Christmas Naughty and Nice is just under and hour so afterwards we’ll have loads of time to enjoy some festive food and drink and celebrate the season with our audience and guests,” said Frank Moher, Western Edge’s artistic director, in a press release. “We’ll have pie there, as usual, but this time we’ll have other sorts of goodies as well. And there’ll be some surprises.”
The theatre company’s next production is Venus in Fur, which shows in January.
Admission to the event is by donation. People are also asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank.
