This bloke tells us he's an elf. He says elves live in Hartlepool, and that the Christmas feeling is a narcotic powder. Now he's telling us that he's addicted to it. It's Christmas Eve and an elf lands in Gary's warehouse. Gary who's not fully convinced it's an elf, calls Simon, who's not fully convinced Gary's sane anymore. They interrogate the intruder, who pleads with them to release him: if he can't get back to work, Christmas might be ruined for everyone. Revised and reimagined to incorporate music and songs, The Night Before Christmas is a magical, weird and wonderful anti-pantomime from the always entertaining Anthony Neilson.
