For immediate release 30th October 2016
Chesil Theatre Winchester gets into the Christmas spirit with their production of Season’s Greetings, Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious classic comedy. Bookings have proved so popular that, with the original performance run sold out, an extra preview has been scheduled for Friday 18th November 2016.
First performed in 1980, Season’s Greetings concerns a gathering of family and friends in a typical English suburban household over the three days of Christmas. Unsurprisingly, amongst this disparate group of people forced to spend time together, squabbles break out – some petty, others not so. There are the remote-controlled tree lights to fix, mechanical toys to repair, a puppet show with sixteen scenes to rehearse and, after a drunken game of snakes and ladders, what could possibly go wrong? Ayckbourn combines cynicism with humour to provide superb entertainment.
Season’s Greetings runs from 18th to 26th November 2016 with tickets available here.
