Merry Christmas!
It’s the season of giving with ‘Christmas at No. 5’
Friends are the family you choose.

Four people (and one child) living in a block of flats in separate apartments. They speak to each other occasionally, even know each other’s names, but they never socialise, never even borrow the sugar or drop in for a cup of tea. Well it’s hard to admit you are lonely, especially at Christmas, when you should be out with friends or spending time with family.

Christmas at no 5 is also about judgement and misconceptions.

This is such a lovely play as each person’s story is gradually revealed. I loved it.
