Radius Christmas

In Time to Sing by Keith Clements the angelic choir rehearses for an important event which is to take place on earth, and in Christmas Through the Window by Richard Tydeman a couple living opposite the Bethlehem inn watch the comings and goings and offer help.













Other copiable scripts from Radius include two by Les Ellison, the hugely popular Are the Kings Still Wearing Curtains? for a flexible mixed-age cast, and Special Delivery, eleven short and lively modern dramas exploring the ways in which the Christmas message was delivered in the traditional nativity story.  The dramas make up a complete nativity play, but each scene serves as a play in itself and so one or two could be used in a carol service or concert.  


A full selection of Radius Christmas scripts is available in the shop

Radius’s regular annual event is the weekend of the Annual General Meeting, when we provide drama and social opportunities in addition to the meeting itself. We also mount one-off events such as book launches, lectures and receptions. Radius Members are welcome to publicise their own drama-related events on these pages and in the Radius Performing magazine.

The theatre is one of the most expressive and useful vehicles for the edification of a country's people, and a barometer that marks the country's greatness or declines. A sensitive theatre . . .  can alter a people's sensibility in just a few years, while a decadent theatre where hooves have taken the place of wings can cheapen and lull to sleep an entire nation. Frederico Garcia Lorca, 1898-1936
