THE MAKEY UPPERS are back at Echo Echo this Christmas with a DOUBLE BILL of shows.

ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS STORIES (duration 1hr10mins) -
A Christmas antidote for grown ups with all the seasons’ favourites. A Panto Nativity, an alternative carol service, the Krampus, a wandering babushka, and Christmas like you’ve never experienced it before. The comedy storytellers delve into the furthest recesses of the festive season from across the world, find strange and familiar traditions, and give them the skew-whiffed MakeyUpper makeover to bring you a hilariously irreverent show with humour and horror in equal measure.

From the people who brought you ‘Alternative Bedtime Stories’, this is festive foolery not for the faint of heart.

(Suitable for 14+ due to strong language adult themes)

ALTERNATIVE BEDTIME STORIES (duration 55mins) -
"Once upon a time, two fair maidens dragged fairy tales kicking and screaming into the 21st century in this sharp and original review of all things “happily ever after”.

Follow the trail of breadcrumbs into the mind of the MakeyUppers where you will stumble across the stories you thought you knew…they may not be as sweet as you remember.

'Topical, 'hilarious' and 'face-achingly original'- these Derry girls have been wowing audiences across the UK and Ireland and received 5 star reviews at Edinburgh Fringe, 2018. You cannot miss this 'thought-provoking' and 'strikingly different' show.
