Christmas is the season of good cheer and harmony among men, but things are not working out quite that way in the Bunker household. As a motley collection of friends and relatives fill the house with their own wishes, dreams, and attitudes, the stage is set for seasonal disharmony and romantic intrigue. This sparkling BBC Radio 4 production of Ayckbourn's festive play features Frances Barber, Phil Daniels, Bill Nighy, Geoffrey Palmer, and John Sessions amongst its cast.
Alan Ayckbourn was born in 1939 and has over sixty plays and productions to his name. Ayckbourn's recent play Things We Do For Love was produced in the West End in 1998 and House/Garden was produced at the Royal National Theatre in 2000.
