Press Clippings

The trio offer a very bleak image of Christmas in their shabby flat, old sports socks hanging from the mantelpiece in lieu of the stockings. The set designer has even made fairy lights seem grim. We start with Ed Easton dancing hilariously badly with excitement at the prospect of Santa's arrival, but his illusions are shattered, before things take an unexpected turn into the horrific, and then into the plain odd. Kath Hughes and James Meehan co-star, and look out, too, for Justin Moorhouse as a very convincing Father Christmas.
