Silent Night

Darlinghurst Theatre Company Presents

By Mary Rachel Brown

A hilarious take-no-prisoners comedy for anyone who feels a mix of terror and affection about spending Christmas with family.

Normally Christmas is a time for giving, but for the Lickfold family it’s a time for winning!

Every year for the past 12 years the Lickfolds have entered the ARCE Awards for the best Christmas decoration display in Australia. The Lickfolds are over participators determined to win at any cost but their path to electric glory is thwarted when someone unexpected comes down the chimney. 

This unwanted Christmas guest wastes no time in exposing the darker secrets behind a winning display and the true reason for his coming.

Tired of consumerism, overeating and fake family bonding? Then Silent Night is the perfect antidote to those Christmas blues.

Darlinghurst Theatre Company produces and presents the world premiere of Silent Night.

Silent Night was developed with the support of Playwriting Australia at the National Script Workshop 2015
