Alan Ayckbourn's play takes place over Christmas in 1980.
Various friends and relatives are celebrating Christmas with Neville and Belinda, a couple.
As the festivities proceed amusing petty squabbles break out and with the arrival of a young writer, some become more serious.
Ayckbourn's play combines hilarious comedy with an underlying pathos.
A bizarre midnight love scene, which sets off a fearful din among mechanical toys and a chaotic puppet show are contrasted with lonely, suburban disenchantment and violence.
