We are excited to announce we will be bringing an alternative festive offering to the city this Christmas when we present Tim Firth’s hilarious play ‘The Flint Street Nativity’ at the John Cooper Studio @41Monkgate this December 12-22.

Mizzis Horrocks' class of seven year olds is about to perform their nativity play at Flint Street Junior School for the proud mums and dads - and the occasional social worker. Squabbles arise when Gabriel wants to play Mary, the Star grumbles he's not a proper star like they have at NASA, Herod won't stop waving to his mum and dad and the subversive Innkeeper is determined to liven up the traditional script. And then the stick insect escapes...

Join us as we alter your perspective on not only the art and politics of the humble nativity, but the John Cooper Studio as a whole! 

Thursday 12th to Sunday 22nd December 2020
Suitable for Adults and children 12+


Standard £18, Concessions (OAP, Under 16) £15


“I’m going to get my colours done. I’m going to find out if I’m a summer or spring or fall or winter. Why don’t you have it done, Shelby? You’re so fashion conscious

No. I’m scared to. I might find out that pink is not in my palette and I’m not sure I could live with that.” 

Steel Magnolias (the basis for the much loved multi Oscar-nominated film) is the bittersweet story of six women who gather under the dryers at Truvy’s Beauty Salon to share gossip, laughter, recipes and beauty secrets on four significant days across three years of their lives in a small US Southern town. When tragedy strikes, they face it with sass and strength, supporting each other through thick and thin. By turns hilarious and poignant, Steel Magnolias is a heart warming portrait of friendship and love.

Featuring six of York's finest actresses, this really is a show not to miss this Spring.
