An affluent couple are surprised to read in the newspaper that Santa Claus is coming to town. This leads them to question their relationship, their jobs and their lives. Have they been bad or good? And what will the consequences be?

This play is written for PLAYlist a regular portmanteau theatre season, where writers are asked to write plays inspired by particular songs on a certain theme; the stipulation is that the plays should be the same length as the songs. This play, based on The Crystals’ ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’, was performed as part of the PLAYlist Christmas edition, at Theatre503, South London. It was directed by Derek Bond and performed by Simon Darwen, Abigail Andjel and Santa Claus Himself.
