Mizzis Horrocks' class of seven year olds is about to perform their nativity play at Flint Street Junior School for the proud mums and dads - and the occasional social worker. Squabbles arise when Gabriel wants to play Mary, the Star grumbles that he's not a proper star like they have at NASA and then the stick insect escapes . . . . .
"Tim Firth's study of infant power-politics is less a cute, end-of-term entertainment than a kindergarten version of The Godfather . . . _The Guardian_
