About: Nativity in Creakebottom

Gus Blathermouth and his ‘All-Male Amateur Dramatics Society of Creakebottom’ are minded to stage a Nativity play in pursuit of their theatrical dreams and to promote the real meaning of Christmas. When a big-wig producer from “that London” offers fame and fortune at the price of their message, the men are left to decide what matters most.

Emerging company Slingshot Theatre are building a fine reputation for leaving audiences with laughter-induced injuries and no more so than in this ridiculous and rambunctious comedy, jam-packed with humour for anyone over 10.

This production is supported by the New Diorama Theatre's Emerging Companies Fund.

Slingshot was established in 2010 to create exciting, raucous and brave new theatre, with a focus on the creative power and vigorous energy of the actor. Their hilarious international debut The Zanniskinheads and the Quest for the Holy Balls toured the UK in 2011. The show was met with gleeful adoration from audiences and so with a spring in their step Slingshot focussed their surreal eyes and quick-witted physical comedy onto the greatest birth on earth, touring Nativity in Creakebottom around the UK in 2013. Back by popular demand, the show now tours again in 2014 for a limited run.


“Face-hurtingly funny – This five-handed, part-musical, quirky, original, hilarious take on the birth of Jesus is not exception"
The Stage

“Sublime examples of mime, clowning, slapstick and physical comedy”
The Scotsman
