A touching play about adolescent friendship.

Luke and Christie are typical sixteen-year-old lads from Manchester. They like camping out, drinking lager and talking about girls. But when they leave school and their lives go in different directions, will they still have things in common?

Chloë Moss’s play Christmas Is Miles Away was first performed at The Studio, Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, in November 2005.

‘Young playwright Chloe Moss excels again in her latest offering’
Metro AM

‘Young Scouse playwright Chloe Moss knows a thing or two about teenage boys, as is evident in her third excellent play, Christmas is Miles Away… As a playwright Moss just gets better and better. The brilliance of her work is demonstrated by quick wit rather than pompous philosophising, making her latest work subtle, hilarious, relevant, and completely unmissable’
City Life

‘Moss assuredly captures the exhilarating terror of standing on the cusp of adulthood and leaving childhood certainties behind. She finds credible language to gain access to the inner world of characters who barely know how to speak their minds … outstandingly touching’
