Synopsis / Riddley Walker’s Introduction:

“My good people,

I am Riddley Walker, your host for this play ‘A Christmas P*A*St’. I invite you to follow me through time (like me keeping one eye on the past, the present and the future.)

I have been collecting stories and traditions to tell you a tale woven through 24 doors, glimpsing moments in ‘the now’ and ‘the then’, and even ‘the when’ to enchant you!

In Poland the splendor of the Szopka puppet theaters captured my imagination, whilst the Germanic Advent calendar provides the means to share fragments of my stories, leading you towards Epiphany!

Who shall we meet!? What shall we see?

We have;

Three wise men sharing a camel!

Omnipotent Celestial wonders

Babushka; ever cleaning, never leaving – always late!

Papa Panov, moaning and groaning through life until…

And my own delightful advertisements for a possible future.

Yours faithfully,

_
