A festive treat for the grown ups.

“Sprinkles… your behaviour in the grotto has been far from seasonally appropriate.”

Forget the boring office Christmas parties and feuding family get-togethers! Sprinkles is a grown up festive treat and antidote to all the tinsel and tantrums. Join us for this script-in-hand rehearsed reading.

Sprinkles is an elf. She works in Santa’s grotto on St Mary’s Street, in between the sex shop and John Lewis. Seriously hungover, stuck on shift with Band Aid playing on repeat. That is until a surprise visitor to the grotto suddenly reminds her of a painful Christmas past … and a profound loss that has been buried inside for far too long.

Originally developed and produced by Dirty Protest in 2018, with Charlotte Gray (The Crown) in the starring role – this brand-new version of this hilarious and moving Christmas tale is a much needed festive treat for the grown ups.

All ticket proceeds from this script-in-hand reading will go towards charities supporting those affected by baby loss – Ellie’s Gift, SANDS and Antenatal Results and Choices (ARC).

Information and support will be available in the Sherman foyer after the performances.
