When winter comes it’s time for Crumble to hibernate. At least, that’s what Crumble has always been told. With the family hurrying and scurrying to make final preparations before the last leaf falls, a chance encounter sets curious Crumble on the most extraordinary adventure to discover the true meaning of Christmas.
Crumble’s Search for Christmas is on show in Leeds this festive season. A heart-warming tale of friendship and adventure, written, devised and directed by Robert Alan Evans (The Night Before Christmas, West Yorkshire Playhouse).
A festive tale of friendship and bravery, this brand new production is set to delight both children and their grown-ups as curious Crumble discovers the magic of winter for the very first time.
Writer and Director Robert Alan Evans said: “Crumble’s Search for Christmas asks what Christmas might look like if you had never seen or experienced it before. It’s about discovery, bravery and how true friendship can be the best Christmas present in the world. The production is an hour-long family experience for both children and adults alike.”
Here’s the last show we saw at the Playhouse:
West Yorkshire Playhouse Artistic Director James Brining said: “Crumble’s Search for Christmas is a brilliant new adventure, and I am thrilled to see Rob return to the Playhouse for the festive season. He is a fantastic writer, theatre maker and director and his work really speaks to audiences of all ages. This magical tale of Crumble’s extraordinary journey into the big wide world poses the question, what does Christmas time really mean? I can’t wait to share it with our young audiences and their grown-ups.”
Crumble’s Search for Christmas plays in the Courtyard Theatre from Saturday 25 November to Saturday 30 December.
