The Twelve Days of Christmas follows Miss Elizabeth Fairfax and her rather unusual Christmas of 1895. It is the eve before Christmas and Miss Elizabeth Fairfax – a single lady who lives a most ordinary life – receives a house call from a Mr Edward Fitzwilliam and his carol singers. Mr Edward Fitzwilliam is at once enchanted by Miss Elizabeth’s beauty and decides, right then and there, that he will marry Miss Fairfax. But since she is a most charming and dear creature, Edward decides that ‘no ordinary wooing will do.’

But will Mr Fitzwilliam ever win Elizabeth’s heart? Will Miss Fairfax’s estate ever return to normal? And where has Cooky gone? Watch in delight as Miss Fairfax tries to cope with a few ‘extraordinary’ presents and THE MOST RIDICULOUS 12 DAYS of her life…

Distraction’s blend of innovative new writing, absurd humour and an entire improvised scene, makes our most popular Christmas show a unique experience to bring you that warm fuzzy festive feeling.

The 3 talented members create an event of real fun with: their unique interpretation of "12 Days"; their memorable character sketches [bellicose Cookie, enigmatic Gypsy, long-suffering Jensen and many others]; humorous soundtrack and incredible [yes, incredible] rapid costume changes. PS My husband wants the phone number of the Cancan Lady Dance, please. Visited Old Joint Stock Pub & Theatre on 2016-12-08

Good performances but seemed a bit chaotic with some gaps in the flow. O e more actor would make a real difference to keep the interest going. Visited Old Joint Stock Pub & Theatre on 2016-12-08

We really enjoyed the evening. The play was funny and the cast of 3 took on so many different characters brilliantly. The can can dancer deserves a special mention - ooh-la-la!! The music was well chosen. Definitely worth seeing. Visited Old Joint Stock Pub & Theatre on 2016-12-07

A brilliant production very funny. The cast worked extremely hard and each one of them brought the characters they played to life. The staging was really clever. Visited Old Joint Stock Pub & Theatre on 2016-12-07
