Production of 'SEASON'S GREETINGS' by Alan Ayckbourn

Directed by Tim Fearon

Tuesday 14th-Saturday 18th December 2021 7:45pm

It is Christmas Eve in the home of Neville and Belinda Bunker. Belinda's sister Rachel is waiting for her friend, novelist Clive, to arrive for a few days. Heavily pregnant Pattie and her husband Eddie are at loggerheads while in the kitchen Neville’s sister Phyllis's efforts to prepare the dinner are hampered by a surfeit of wine. Her kindly, incompetent doctor husband Bernard with his interminable puppet show is at war with bullying, retired security guard Harvey, Neville’s uncle, who has a rather unseasonal stash of weapons with him.

Mayhem is quickly unleashed leading to a romantic tryst, an unforgettable puppet show and maybe even a murder…
