The Flint Street Nativity was originally a TV comedy produced for Yorkshire Television and aired during Christmas 1999.
Tim Firth rewrote the play and added music for this production at the Liverpool Playhouse.
The eight-year-old pupils of Flint Street Primary School, all played by adults, perform the nativity play for their parents. The story is based on real events, collected over a period of ten years from members of Tim Firth’s family and friends who were teachers.
