Set in an average suburban house, this is the tale of the night before
Christmas – when various house guests arrive – and the subsequent
three days when they start to wish they hadn’t!
Neville has, once again, forgotten to buy his wife Belinda a gift. Uncle Harvey is glued to
the TV watching a non-stop marathon of action films. Neville’s friend Eddie and his wife Pattie are practically at each other’s throats. Phyllis slowly gets sloshed on the cooking wine
while her inept husband Bernard is intent on his annual, terrible, puppet show. All sounds pretty
normal, until Belinda’s sister Rachel invites the handsome Clive to the home – a writer friend no one in the family knows – and then things really start to go awry.
Directed by Jennifer Scott-Reid and featuring virtuoso performances from a delightfully talented cast. A real seasonal treat for all!

Did you know?

Bringing the river to life in raucous style each June, ‘The Bumps’ are a chaotic series of rowing races. In this Cambridge tradition, which dates back to the early 19th Century, boats set out in single file and must catch and touch, or ‘bump’, the boat ahead without being caught by the rowers on their tail.
