As an amusing assortment of strange characters turn up at their door, the pair soon discovers that turkey isn’t the only thing on the menu... A story about friendship on the most famous day of the year but without all the cliches of the Christmas season. The play takes us through a few hours in the life of one stressed individual and his well-meaning friend as Christmas is forced upon them in more ways than one!"
Encompass Productions, who are based in London and have been making new work since 2010, describe their mission as "to challenge, move and entertain".
