Season's Greetings

Season's Greetings



    When families get together to celebrate a special occasion, there’s a danger that all hell will break loose. Particularly if you happen to be trapped for several days with all your relatives and copious amounts of alcohol…

    Neville and Belinda are hosting their extended family over a long weekend. The presence of two tyrannical uncles – Bernard, whose ham-fisted annual puppet shows are a source of dread to young and old alike, and TV addict Harvey – promises to stir up trouble from the start and that’s before you add to the mix broken toys, creaking marriages and guest novelist Clive, whose relationship with Belinda’s sister Rachel is going nowhere, causing him to look for love elsewhere.

    Directed by the author, don’t miss this rare opportunity to see a sparkling new production of a classic Ayckbourn comedy.

    What the critics said about the National Theatre’s 2010
    production of Season’s Greetings:

    ‘One of his finest works’
    The Daily Telegraph

    ‘Mordantly hilarious… a classic of drunken disasters and misrouted passions’
    The Independent
