Aired Tuesday 1 – Thursday 24 December
Directed by Chris Lawson
Filmed and Edited by Grant Archer
24 plays – 14 writers – 25 actors.
The Advent Plays were a little sprinkle of Christmas, released daily across our Social Media channels, perfect to watch whilst you eat the chocolate out of your calendar at home.
Writers were given a Christmas themed title to respond to, and all of the short plays were filmed on stage at the Coliseum on our cosy living room set, with props and furniture from shows you may have seen. We meet a range of characters who share their funny, sweet and sometimes obscure Christmas tales.
Subscribers to the Coliseum YouTube Channel received a notification each morning when the day’s Advent Play became available. The plays were also available to view on the Coliseum’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels.
