The Bethlehem Motor Inn is on the brink of collapse, and it’s taking its toll on owner/husbands Mathew-Mark and Lucan John’s marriage which is now on the Brink of divorce. They’ve tried everything from watering down the complimentary shampoo ‘n bodywash to selling some of the terrible motor inn art on Trademe. It’s going to take a holy miracle to keep the doors to the Queen-Supreme-Toilet Block-Facing Rooms, with jacuzzi bath, open for Christmas.

From the minds that brought you festive hits like Hauraki Horror and The Opening Night Before Christmas comes this raucous festive farce sure to become a camp Christmas cult hit. Written by and starring internet and comedy superstars Chris Parker and Tom Sainsbury, Christ! What a Night! sees both Instagram forces off their phones and live on stage together alongside Aotearoa’s hottest talent, Kura Forrester, Brynley Stent, Rutene Spooner and Tom Eason.

Blending together Parker and Sainsbury kitsch kiwi comedy style with the joy and wonder of a classic Christmas tale, Christ! What a Night! was a sell-out smash hit in its premiere season in Christchurch and its return season with an all original cast is sure to sell out fast.
