Season’s Greetings


A comedy by Alan Ayckbourn, Directed by Steve Brookes

Season's Greetings is a black, often farcical, frequently hilarious comedy about a dysfunctional family Christmas. It is set in the average English suburban house of Belinda & Neville Bunker.

Belinda endures a stale relationship with Neville - he being always too busy fiddling with anything mechanical out in his shed – so she resorts to flapping about the house and constantly dressing the Christmas tree. They have invited their family for the traditional Christmas celebration.

The guests include: Neville’s exhausted & neurotic sister Phyllis; her husband Bernard, an ineffectual doctor whose annual puppet shows are the stuff of legend and terror to both young and old alike; Neville’s lacklustre & lazy friend Eddie and his very pregnant & nagging wife Pattie; uncle Harvey, a cantankerous military man who bemoans the collapse of society whilst himself gorging on TV violence; Belinda’s unmarried and emotionally fuddled sister, Rachel and Clive, a suave writer and friend of Rachel.
