By turns hilarious and heart-rending, Star Child is a nativity play like no other. Woven through with myths and beliefs from many cultures, Barlow's play upends the traditional Christmas tale and retells it as a story relevant for now. Mary doesn't want the baby, the holy star goes awol, there's a talking donkey, an over-excited midwife, three wise women and a shepherd with an angel-obsession. Not to mention a disgruntled God who wakes in the nick of time to see the earth facing disaster and a Herod who wages war on the world's children. Star Child is a tale for our times, certain to challenge, move and inspire. In aid of The Art Room Charity. The Art Room is a charity offering art as therapy to children and young people aged 5-16 who may be at risk of exclusion from school.
