Season's Greetings

by

Alan Ayckbourn

SYNOPSIS

It is Christmas and Belinda and Neville are celebrating with relatives and friends. The family includes Neville's alcoholic sister, Phyllis, and her husband Bernard, an incompetent doctor whose annual puppet shows are disastrous and boring to young and old alike. Add Neville's friend Eddie and his pregnant wife, Pattie, Uncle Harvey, a slightly senile retired security guard and TV addict, Rachel, Belinda's unmarried and emotionally unstable sister, and finally Clive, a writer in an unsuccessful relationship with Rachel. Forced together over 3 days at Christmas, the chaotic atmosphere becomes explosive...
