Meet Elf number 1-9-6-5: real name, Bobo Sparklepants.
Life as an elf has reached breaking point and Bobo seeks professional help of Dr. Moroz to try and regain his Christmas spirit. As the pair try to get to the route of Bobo's lack of festive cheer they find common ground and solace in each other's past and come to realise that it's okay not to be okay.
A heartwarming holiday story that encourages us all to look after our mental 'elf.
Originally produced by the WORCESTER REPERTORY COMPANY at the Swan Theatre, Worcester A Picture of 'Elf was filmed in 2020 and will be premiered online.
General release is set for 2021.
The stage version of the show will also be available for bookings in 2021.
"It says something about the writer’s craft that a play lasting barely 45 minutes can leave such an impression on the audience. And it does - tightly and imaginatively directed by Ben Humphrey, this Worcester Repertory Company presentation is indeed a much-needed oasis of reflective calm as we enter the maelstrom of the Christmas season."
"...what brings this thought-provoking one act play to brilliant, blossoming life is the fabulous stagecraft of Rep regular Rob Leetham and George Ormerod as our crazy mixed up elf."
