By Alan Ayckbourn
Performed at the Brotfabrik, Bonn-Beuel
Tuesday 14th – Saturday 18th November 2023
Christmas comes earlier every year…
and The Bonn Players have already started rehearsing their autumn production of Alan Ayckbourn’s play, Season’s Greetings, with enthusiasm and plenty of seasonal spirit.
Christmas is a time of love, warmth – and often, huge family arguments! So what can happen when an average, but dysfunctional group of people gather in a typical English suburban house, and suffer a less than festive family Christmas?
Alan Ayckbourn’s play, written in 1980, has been performed by professionals and amateurs alike ever since. Beginning on Christmas Eve, the play takes a look at four days in the life of such a family, swinging back and forth between black and farcical comedy. A recent Guardian review of a Scarborough, UK, production, concluded that “All nine characters in the play have wants that remain unfulfilled, yet the action escalates into laugh-aloud ridiculousness! The beauty of Ayckbourn’s writing is to expose glimpses of the tragic elements of their peculiarities, seasoning comedy with compassion.”
