Harry's Christmas

Christmas isn’t always Merry, especially not this year for Harry.

Harry sits alone in his London flat, counting his cards, waiting for anyone to call him; perhaps for an old friend to knock on the door, or for an old lover to appear or just for someone to have a drink with. Waiting for anyone, really. Anyone.

As the dreaded Christmas Day nears his sense of isolation deepens & he falls further into the trough of despair.

This portrait of loneliness and isolation confronts the huge, often unspoken issues that affect many people for whom the end of December, rather than being a festive season, is a time when emotional pressures are at their highest.

Harry’s Christmas is a searingly dark comedy that was originally performed at The Donmar Warehouse in 1985, yet the ideas explored through the life of one man in this complex and microscopic examination of society’s hypocrisy makes it as relevant today as it was then, if not more so & they affect millions of people.

 

This production is in aid of  CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably).
