About the Show

Alan Ayckbourn’s classic 1972 bleak comedy returns to NY. Set in three kitchens over three Christmases, the play charts the relentless rise of the socially aspiring Hopcrofts at the expense of two other couples.

Clever, Quirky, Dated, Entertaining, Well-played

See it if ur up for a skillfully played anti-holiday dramedy/farce in which 3 middle class couples reverse social status over 3 Xmases in 70s Britain.

Don't see it if u expect this to be a frivolous, knee-slapping British farce [It's a funny play but w/serious political overtones & an implicit malaise]. Read more

Don't see it if You expect elaborate sets & lighting, don’t like imported shows, have trouble within men, not a fan of slapstick or pun-like humor Read more
