Gary McNair: War on Christmas

Thu 11 - Sun 28 Dec 2014 | 7.30pm | Tickets: £10/£8 | Preview (Thu 11): £6/£4 | 18+

It’s December.
So dust off the tinsel,
whip out your Santa hat,
mull your wine and have a lovely wholesome festive period.
It’s time to celebrate.

Or is it?

Maybe this year you should stay in and hide. Maybe this year you should get ready to fight.
Because this year, there’s a war on Christmas.

Fresh from his award winning, sell-out Fringe show, Donald Robertson Is Not A Standup Comedian, Gary McNair hits The Arches with a hilariously anarchic take on the Christmas spirit.

Step into the shoes of an enthusiastic young Santa working one of Glasgow’s poorest grottos, as he embarks on a journey to find the true meaning of the season. But be warned: A Christmas Carol this is not.

Invoking equal parts glitter and chaos, McNair invites audiences to work themselves into a festive frenzy in a night of song, silliness and social commentary that will have you saying ‘Humbug!’ to that John Lewis advert.

War on Christmas mixes the best bits of traditional Christmas entertainment with a decent helping of satire, aiming squarely at a decidedly adult- if not entirely grownup- audience.

The preview night for this show is Thursday 11th December. Tickets for the preview are £6/£4 conc.
