Background


Writer of Humble Boy (National Theatre) Charlotte Jones' hilarious and heartfelt comedy about finding a place to fit in won the 1998 Pearson Best Play Award and, on its twenty-first anniversary, receives its first ever London production, from comedy specialists Signal Theatre Company.


Quirky and kinky, and with a rocking Elvis soundtrack*, this sweet yet saucy celebration of life's outsiders is the perfect 'adults only' alternative Christmas treat. (*NB: is NOT a musical!)
