The Return of the Yuletide Kid

Former child film star Anthony Richards returns home to Wales for Christmas to learn what is more important, fame or family.

Warm-hearted comedy that tells the tale of a former child star who learns what’s really important at Christmas.

Anthony Richards is depressed. His agent has just dropped him, he’s unemployed, and he has little choice but to go home for Christmas - home to his doting mother, his jealous brother and a claustrophobic Welsh community that still reveres him as the valley boy who made it big.

Back at his childhood home, Anthony has demons to confront and ghosts, as well as stalkers, to lay. But when Patricia - the head of drama at the area’s most prestigious stage school - presents Ant with an offer to write and direct a play, Anthony has a chance to leave his baggage in the past, once and for all. But first he has to overcome writer’s block, his many alter-egos, a succession of ardent admirers and the rampant jealousy of a bitter new rival.
