Harlow Playhouse Christmas Advert

A message from Harlow Playhouse

THIS year, with distance between us and separated from loved ones. Christmas might be a bit different, so we’ve done something a bit different too…

Last night we launched our first ever Christmas advert live on our Facebook page and we were overwhelmed by the response. The advert has already been seen by 10,000 people in less than 24 hours! Created by and starring Harlow Playhouse staff and local residents, the advert tells the story of a proportion of society that is often overlooked in favour of more traditional family structures. Writer and Producer Susie Corcoran said:

‘I’m so excited to be able to finally share a project that I’ve worked really hard on and is very personal to me. This year has been a struggle in so many ways and with Christmas around the corner, the feeling of isolation is amplified and I wanted to create something which acknowledged that whilst bringing people together. Surrounded by the most amazing team I think we have created something quite special and I hope you all enjoy it. ’

Here at Harlow Playhouse wanted to create something at a time when artists are struggling and creative output is at a minimum.

Artistic and Executive Director of Harlow Playhouse, Rory Davies said:

‘We are so excited to present our very first ever Christmas Advert from Harlow Playhouse. It’s been an unprecedented time for theatre this year so we are beyond excited to re-open in time for Christmas with our socially distanced shows Treasure Island and The Great Christmas Sleigh Ride. Re-opening the theatre with this Christmas advert has been particularly special, the team has worked really hard on it and we are hoping it makes everyone feel a little less alone at this time of year.’

Sending love, hope and optimism from all of us here at Harlow Playhouse, we hope enjoy our little advert which can be viewed here on our Facebook page:
