What would you do for the perfect Christmas?

Reality and the ridiculous collide in an enchanting festive adventure, whisking you between Victorian England and the present day.

From Peepolykus, the company that brought Spyski and the West End hit The Hound of the Baskervilles to Liverpool, and under the direction of Artistic Director Gemma Bodinetz (Tartuffe and The Hypochondriac), this is the extraordinary tale of a reckless man who risks everything one Christmas Eve.

Jack Wilkins is forced into a desperate attempt to retrieve his life after accepting an irresistible offer from a sparkly eyed stranger. But time is running out and if he can't honour the deal he has struck and get to the hospital by the allotted hour, he will lose everything. Forever.

With a toothy reindeer, a distracted fairy godmother, a warehouse full of pants and a seasonal nod to some of our best-loved Christmas stories No Wise Men is an hilarious, magical and absurd Christmas cracker of a show.

WARNING: This show contains some scenes of a traditional nature.

"...The most glorious entertainment for ages." Time Out on Spyski

A Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse and Peepolykus Production.
