The Holly and The Ivy comes to the Lichfield Garrick

The Holly and the IvyThe award-winning Middle Ground Theatre Company are bringing their production of The Holly and The Ivy to the Lichfield Garrick.

Set in a Norfolk vicarage on Christmas Eve 1947, the vicar’s family gather for the festive season. Peace and goodwill radiates from the warm hearted elderly vicar, cared for by his young daughter. But with the arrival of two irritable aunts and an errant daughter the emotional veneer is skilfully peeled away.

As skeletons tumble from closets and stones are turned over, family members are forced to confront their regrets and secret anxieties. Even the lovable vicar is not immune to the stresses and strains of a normal family life.

This atmospheric and absorbing human story, starring Philip Madoc along with Tom Butcher (The Bill/Doctors) and Corrinne Wicks (Doctors), has received the Theatre Critic’s Choice in both The Guardian and The Times.

The Holly & The Ivy will run from January 26 to January 30. To book tickets call the Lichfield Garrick box office on 01543 412121 or visit
