The viral grinch that is Covid-19 might have tried to scupper Alphabetti’s plans this Christmas but it hasn’t stopped them dishing out some festive joy (in video form) via the internet. All you have to do is simply curl up by the fire, press play and enjoy.

First up is Love From by Alphabetti Theatre and Woven Nest and created by Alphabetti’s award-winning Artistic/Executive Director, Ali Pritchard. It’s a production that will transport the audience into different worlds and features a villain who only eats raw turnips and rat stew – subsequently needing to douse themselves in sickly-sweet tropical perfume to her invisible gargoyle subordinates. This will be available from Monday 21st December.

The second is Merry Christmas, Holy & Ivan, an animated Christmas adventure by Christina Berriman Dawson & Richard Dawson. Set on a Christmas Eve in the nineties featuring a dog that needs a knee replacement and a mysterious night of discovery with Santa to find out the true meaning of Christmas. The video is available to watch now, with donations welcome.

Both are available online indefinitely. To enjoy both productions head to the Alphabetti website.
