Frantic festive farce from TRB favourites New Old Friends

It’s been a long hard year and the Jameson family are looking forward to a pre-Christmas break at their country getaway. The catch is, they all planned it to be a secret; the daughter’s with her lover, the mother’s with the daughter’s fiancé, the father is with the neighbour, and the butler is away with the fairies. All in all Les & Ben, the two burglars who’ve been casing the joint for weeks, couldn’t have picked a worse time for their robbery.

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.
