Christmas Auditions!

We’re looking forward to being back this festive season.


MOTHER CHRISTMAS By David Lewis


Christmas past, Christmas present and Christmas future are all very familiar. But in the hands of a dysfunctional family intent on throwing annual fancy dress parties on Christmas Eve under the watchful eye of their matriarch Maggie, seasonal festivities are destined to spiral out of control. Over the course of three Christmases, Maggie, her children Davina and Ben and her granddaughter Grace attempt to have themselves a merry little Christmas but past resentments and recriminations inevitably rise to the surface each time. Surely one year will be full of peace and love and the true spirit of Christmas? Don’t bet on it . . .


This is a play about relationships and the family dynamic across three acts which signify three different years at Christmas.


This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.
