Tower Theatre present Season's Greetings - Bridewell
Tower Theatre Amateur Dramatic Company presents Season's Greetings by Alan Ayckbourn at the Bridewell Theatre, central London from 16 to 20 December 2014.
The play was written over thirty years ago, yet still remains one of the most popular Ayckbourn titles, as it displays the dysfunction and fiasco of a typical traditional English Christmas.
Directed by Gigi Robarts, the comedy is set on Christmas Eve, and while Belinda is rushing around decorating the tree and seeing to all the guests and their needs, Eddie and a very pregnant Pattie are having a serious bust-up. Meanwhile Bernard is conducting a chaotic rehearsal of his annual gift for the children - a puppet show of the Three Little Pigs - as his wife, Phyllis gets quietly sloshed in the kitchen on the cooking wine. Then something disastrous occurs...
The Tower Theatre Company are the only full-time, non-professional company in central London and stages up to 18 productions a year. They were founded in 1932 and have over 700 members who "get involved for the sheer love of it".
