Christmas Dinner

The Lyceum joins forces with Catherine Wheels Theatre Company to bring the magic of Christmas back to The Lyceum in

By Robert Alan Evans
Directed by Gill Robertson

After a horrible year, stage hand Lesley has decided that Christmas should be cancelled. The only festive joy she wants is the turkey sandwich in her lunch box. So she is shutting down the theatre, turning off the lights, packing up the glitter curtains, the giant beanstalk, the fake snow and going home to have dinner alone...

But as the bells of St Cuthbert’s strike twelve, it seems the theatre has other ideas... from the back of the costume cupboard, a troupe of festive spirits emerge with an absolute sack full of festive cheer. Is this the last thing Lesley needs? or can this strange Christmas Gang and their stories help her feel the magic of Christmas again?

Join us for a feast of fun for everyone (even Lesley!) and make The Lyceum Christmas magic part of your family celebration this year. 

This is a family show for everyone to enjoy, Running time is estimated at 75 minutes - which may be too long for some young children.


Christmas Dinner is a Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh production. in association with Catherine Wheels Theatre Company.
