You are invited to spend Christmas with Neville and Belinda Bunker
and Belinda’s lonely sister Rachel
and Neville’s alcoholic sister Phyllis
and Phyllis’s hapless husband Bernard (and his puppet show)
and Neville’s bloodthirsty uncle Harvey
and Rachel’s sort-of, maybe new boyfriend Clive
and Neville’s former colleague Eddie
and Eddie’s heavily pregnant wife Pattie
We’re sure it’ll be a fabulous festive family get-together where absolutely nothing will go wrong.
Playwright Alan Ayckbourn once noted that “Christmas is a gift to the dramatist – what better opportunity is there to stick together a group of people who can’t stand each other?”
Regarded as one of his best works, SEASON’S GREETINGS is a hilarious festive family reunion of yuletide disasters that wrings every ounce of bitter humour from that time of year when we’re all expected to be compulsorily merry.
Prepare yourself for the season of goodwill with this uproarious, explosive mixture of mistletoe and wine, rows and tears, frustrated wives and eccentric uncles!
Also showing A new exhibition ‘Chiaroscuro’ by Simon J Hall, presented in association with the Biscuit Factory. This latest exhibition of paintings have been inspired by the landscape and buildings of the region and elsewhere and an interest in history and the environment.
