A heart-warming and hilarious tale of the true meaning of Christmas, Nativity! stars Martin Freeman (The Office, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) and Ashley Jensen (Extras, Ugly Betty). Having given up his career as a frustrated, under-achieving actor, Mr Maddens (Freeman) has become a frustrated, under-achieving primary school teacher. Each Christmas, his school and that of his long-time adversary, Gordon Shakespeare (Jason Watkins: Being Human) compete for a 5-star review of their respective nativity plays. Time after time, Shakespeare and his privileged Oakmoor students thrash the underdogs at St Bernadette's. Maddens is resigned to this. His kids are hopeless and losing is the story of his life. But when Maddens makes an idle boast that St Bernadette's has attracted the attention of Hollywood, he finds himself, and his school, tasked with the impossible. Not only is he expected to put on a barnstorming Xmas Xtravaganza, but a hotshot Hollywood producer needs to attend! Overnight, Maddens finds himself at the centre of a perfect storm comprising the Mayor (Ricky Tomlinson: The Royle Family), the media, a posse of pushy parents, and an army of pint-sized potential Marys and Josephs. All St Bernadette's is floating on a cloud of stardust and the children are bursting with Christmas spirit. But can Maddens possibly bring Hollywood to Coventry and make their dreams come true or will his tangle of lies finally catch him out?
