(an amateur production by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD)
It is Christmas in the Bunker household. Belinda and Neville have invited their family for a traditional Christmas celebration. 'Tis the season for bickering relatives, drunken mishaps, and an ill-conceived puppet show that no one wants to see.
The guests include: Neville’s exhausted sister Phyllis; her husband Bernard, a doctor whose annual puppet shows are the stuff of legend and terror to both young and old alike; Neville’s friend Eddie and his pregnant wife Pattie; uncle Harvey, a slightly senile retired security guard and a television-addict; Belinda’s unmarried sister, Rachel; and Clive, a writer and ‘friend’ of Rachel.
Mix in glasses liberally filled with festive ‘Spirits’, the perils of cooking a lamb dinner and watch on as the holiday traditions we all love (and secretly dread) meet with disaster in this riotously funny take on a "normal" family Christmas.
