A darkly comic play set in the world of office politics.
Excited about her new job as administrative assistant at a call centre, Stella is eager to fit in with her workmates and they seem to like her too, especially when they find out how much they all have in common. It’s really like a family at Scion Communications so when they discover that Stella is pregnant they’re all delighted for her. However, as her pregnancy progresses, their certainties about love, relationships and parenthood are questioned and their lives both at work and at home begin to unravel.
After all: where’s the harm in a celebratory drink and some office karaoke?
Nativities premiered at Live Theatre in Newcastle, February 2012.
