The Everton Players are back on stage next week with Mike Harding’s Comfort and Joy.

The Everton Players are back on stage this month with Mike Harding’s Comfort and Joy.

More known as a comedian and folk singer, Mike Harding has also written more than 40 plays and books during the last 35 years.

Comfort and Joy is a hilarious look at the pros and cons of a great family Christmas with characters we all recognise from our own festive gatherings, from the out-of-tune carol singers to the new neighbours and the relatives who flock home for the holidays to the daughter’s new boyfriend, who is called Crispin – how will he fit in with this northern family?

Added to this is a dog called Trumpton who barks from the wings and has a wind problem, two frightened cats who’ve had an ‘accident’ in the car, 12 stick insects who get mixed up with a bowl of twiglets and a turkey last seen being dragged down the path by the dog and cats having a tug of war.

Comfort and Joy will be performed at Everton Village Hall from October 28-31 at 7.30pm each night.

Tickets are £6 (£5 NUS) on 01777 817275 or website www.evertonvillageplayers.co.uk
