ANGELS IN BRISTOL | BRISTOL OLD VIC 

THE STORY OF CHRISTMAS IN 9 MIRACLES 
BRISTOL OLD VIC 2020


A series of Nine short films made in collaboration with communities from across Bristol. 
This is the Nativity, but not as you know it, retold as a story of miraculous hope in a city aching for change.

‘I am a G-O-D
A GOD GOD, not just a capital G
Rate, me please. I’m a whole sky
of caps lock. I could be anywhere in the
world, but i’m here, at the Old Vic. 
Old! You call this place old, but I am older. 
I know. Black don’t crack. Elixir of divinity
better than any cream for mortal skin. 
These knees don’t creak, 
but my soul is weary.’
