When two young foxes, Rusty and Amber, venture into a tumbledown old barn the last thing they’re expecting is to meet a new best friend – Chris, a Christmas tree who longs for fun and excitement.
Their new-found friendship is viewed with disapproval by Noel, the barn’s resident Know-Owl, and when the foxes come up with a plan to grant Chris’s dearest wish she is furious. Ignoring her words of warning the trio embark upon an adventure that doesn’t turn out quite as they expected: there is laughter, danger, tears, songs, and surprises.
One thing’s for sure, the last Christmas tree is certainly no ordinary piece of greenery.
Produced and performed in association with Joel Hall and Birmingham Conservatoire.
