Twas the Fight Before Christmas

Twas the Fight before Christmas!

11 - 28 November

Think your family is complicated? Meet the most dysfunctional family you can imagine as they try to navigate Christmas. Peace on earth and good will to all men? Not likely! Ever since her husband died, Mary’s horrible adult children have been ruining Christmas. This year, with the help of a suicidal French psychiatrist, Mary is determined to take Christmas back. Hilarious and uplifting Christmas comedy.

Show runs: 11 - 28 November (No shows on Sundays and Mondays).

Show starts at 7.30pm
