Show details

Synopsis


Nobody's perfect ... and, after all, it is Christmas!

(to the tune of The Holly and the Ivy)


Poor Carrie's feeling nervous

And Adam won't commit

Matthew's got a little secret

And Sheena won't submit


Oh, Mum's been planning Xmas

Since early January

How are they going to cope with life?

Thank God for therapy!


What happens when an extended family gathers in the kitchen for a traditional Christmas?


As long-held mechanisms for survival are laid bare, even Mum, who's been preparing this lunch since last January, becomes embroiled.


Long-held rivalries and resentments will out.


Accusations fly, relationships deconstruct.


Rules For Living is a seasonal family tale of disharmony, ruined expectations, overindulgence, a manic board game called "Bedlam!" and some of life's little coping mechanisms.


Let the festivities commence!
