Liverpool’s Royal Court Studio bundles up a collection of 10-minute festive plays for Christmas.

The downstairs studio, once the home of the Rawhide Comedy Club, began a renovation to create another theatre space with 150 seats in a mix of cabaret style and traditional rows, original art deco features and a new bar area.

The Stocking Fillers are short plays written by members of new writing groups and brought to life by professional actors and directors. The cast confirmed are Helen Carter, Sinead Cullen-Barrett, Paul Duckworth and Joe Shipman.

Shows confirmed:

  • White Christmas Lies by Wallace Charles
  • Better Watch Out by Rachel Clark
  • Santa On The Roof by Jacqui Dunne
  • Midnight Mass Bouncer by E J Fisher
  • Derby Day Disaster: North Pole Edition by Rachel Hunter
  • A Tipsy Christmas Fairy Tale by Liz Redwood
  • Shelter by Harvey Robinson

Royal Court Stocking Fillers runs from December 14 to 30.
