Jonny Donahoe’s Thirty Christmases, which ran in Oxford last December, is coming to London for Christmas 2017.
The festive comedy show with music stars Jonny Donahoe and Paddy Gervers (the duo otherwise known as Jonny & the Baptists) alongside Rachel Parris.
After playing to sell-out houses, receiving rave reviews and being named as one of The Stage’s Top Ten UK Christmas Shows last year, Thirty Christmases is now going to be at Euston’s New Dioroma Theatre 4th-23rd December 2017.
It’s a hilarious and heart-warming story about traditions, politics, family rivalries – and making Christmas happen, despite everything. Created in partnership with Crisis Skylight, the show touches on themes of homelessness and foster care in a new, contemporary Christmas story for adults.
Meanwhile, Jonny Donahoe has also co-written a new show for Oxford’s Old Fire Station (where Thirty Christmases ran last year) called Working Christmas. It stars Omar Ibrahim and Joanna Neary and will run 6th-23rd December.
Jonny has said: “I’m thrilled the Old Fire Station have asked me back after last year’s Christmas show – I guess some people must have liked it! Hopefully we can do the town justice again. It’s such a special treat as a writer to come home for Christmas artistically as well as personally.”
