The Play

Desert Dust at The Star of Bethlehem is a new play by Alexander Moschos (Brainville at Night, Found In Translation) directed by Dan Ayling (Hampstead Theatre, Arcola and regular Associate Director for Katie Mitchell). It has been written in response to ideas of participants they met during a series of theatrical workshops who live with dementia.

The night before Christmas, two siblings discover a homeless couple hiding in their pub and endeavour to keep their secret. Fusing sensory elements of live music, puppetry, immersive design elements and audience interaction, an ensemble of four professional actor/musicians will bring the spirit of Christmas alive. Join us as the three wise birds take us on a Christmas journey through the story of The Star of Bethlehem one night of Christmas Eve.
