The audience reaction to Get Santa! by Anthony Neilson with music by Nick Powell, at the Royal Court Theatre until 15 January.

It's Christmas Eve but Holly isn't happy.

All she's ever wanted from Santa is to meet her real Dad for the first time. And every time, Santa's failed to deliver, bringing lots of useless presents instead.

Well, Holly's had enough. This year she has a plan. She's going to wait up and trap Santa when he arrives and get from him the only present she's ever wanted.

But that's only the beginning of the adventure: add in a very dim helper called Bumblehole, a touch of magic dust and a Teddy Bear with an evil masterplan and you have the ingredients for a magical, musical and downright mischievous Christmas show with a fresh moral.

"Get Santa! is all we want for Christmas! A funny, energetic and refreshingly modern play that is destined to become a contemporary classic. It's a pleasure to spend Christmas with Holly and her family."

"A weird, wild, highly inventive family show... the kids around me were having a whale of a time."

"This beautifully unlikely play has heart to match its humour. This is the most properly Christmassy show of the season."
