Seasons Greetings

posterOh, the joys of a family Christmas! The unwanted relations! The guests that you are not only unsure of, but also have no desire to get to know. The television! And the forced family jollity that makes the Festive season such a joyful time to be welcomed and dreaded simultaneously. If you are in the midst of preparing for your own happy gatherings, come and see ours first - where the worst nightmares of the holidays collide in Alan Ayckbourn's celebrated seasonal feast - and be glad it's not yours.

My Cousin Rachel by Daphne Du Maurier

The mysterious, captivating Rachel – innocent or murderess? Diana Morgan’s adaptation brings to life Daphne du Maurier’s classic novel of romance, tension and suspicion. Did she murder Philip Ashley’s beloved Cousin Ambrose for his estate? When Philip inherits the estate himself, he too falls in love with Rachel – but is constantly torn between belief and disbelief in her. Is she using him to get the estate for herself? Tragedy throws a last despairing light on events.

Adapted by Diana Morgan

Oliver Goldsmith's comedy may be 240 years old – but which parent today doesn't want their kids to marry well – and which kid today won't do what they can to get what they want?! And of course, when there's money involved...
