 It’s Christmas. Relatives you hardly ever see arrive at your house for the festivities. No-one receives a present that is at all appropriate. Culinary disasters abound.

Long buried resentments rear their ugly heads as the alcohol flows and tongues are loosened. And the plumbing goes wrong…

Mike Harding’s comedy is painfully - but always amusingly — familiar.

Laugh away the winter blues!
