Get ready to unwrap Christmas and laugh until it hurts! The Arts University Bournemouth is proud to present a strictly limited run of Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious Christmas comedy, Season’s Greetings, starring graduating actors from the newly Drama UK accredited Acting Course and directed by special guest director, Karen Henson, from Bristol Old Vic.
Cheating at snakes and ladders, fighting over comic books, a bungled infidelity beneath the tree. Christmas has arrived in the Bunker household along with family and friends. But as the children lurk just out of sight, it’s the adults who are letting the side down. Presiding over the festivities are two warring uncles, one a kindly, incompetent doctor with an interminable puppet show to perform; the other a bullying retired security guard who dominates the TV, brings toy guns for his nieces and determines there’s a thief in their midst. It’s a Christmas you’ll never forget.
All performances are onThursday 21 – Saturday 23 November at 7.30pm with 2.30pm matinees on Friday and Saturday in the dedicated state-of-the-art Studio Theatre on the University Campus.
Tickets are £5 from www.unwrapchristmas.com with no booking fees. Get into the Christmas spirit with a themed bar, open 30 minutes before each show and complete with mince pies, mulled wine and more festive favourites.
