Frantic festive farce from TRB favourites New Old Friends

It’s been a tough year and the Jameson family are all planning to enjoy a Christmas Eve getaway at their soon-to-be sold country home. The catch is, everyone planned to do it in secret; the daughter is with her lover, the mother is with the daughter’s fiancé, the father is with the neighbour, the maid is with the local oik, and the underpaid butler is eyeing up both the housekeeper and the valuables.

A brand-new story inspired by P.G. Wodehouse, Noel Coward and classic British comedy presented with New Old Friends’ trademark flair.

Just four actors play multiple roles with lightning quick changes in this fast talking, fast-paced farce.

★★★★ “An absorbing tale that has elements of everything from Agatha Christie whodunnits to the legendary Whitehall farces of yesteryear, and even has echoes of those word-play specialists the Two Ronnies.”  The Stage on Crimes Against Christmas.
