Half a dozen friends and relatives are celebrating Christmas at Neville and Belinda's suburban home.
Seasons Greetings is a typical Ayckbourn black, though often farcical, comedy about a dysfunctional group of colourful characters caught up in festive mayhem!
It is Christmas Eve in the home of Neville and Belinda Bunker. Belinda's sister Rachel is waiting for her friend, novelist Clive, to arrive for a few days. Heavily pregnant Pattie and her husband Eddie are at loggerheads while in the kitchen Auntie Phyllis's efforts to prepare the dinner are hampered by her drunken and clumsy antics. Her doctor husband Bernard's seasonal highlight is his puppet theatre entertainment and retired security guard Uncle Harvey has a rather unseasonal stash of weapons with him……
Mayhem is quickly unleashed leading to a romantic tryst, an unforgettable puppet show and maybe even a murder …… .Come and watch this comedy festive classic unravel !!!
This play will be staged at Havant Arts Centre, East Street Havant - Bench Theatre's home since 1977.
