SHOW SEASON – 22 November – 9 December 2017
Season’s Greetings is a play for 5 men and 4 women. Half-a-dozen relatives and friends are celebrating Christmas with Neville and Belinda. Various children are also there: though unseen, their presence is always felt and indeed seems duplicated in the adults. Petty, and not so petty, squabbles break out and Christmas presents are rifled. A final climax, resulting from the arrival of Clive, leads to what appears to be a tragedy as he is shot by the trigger -happy Harvey as a looter. Hilarious highlights include a chaotically setting up a fearful din among several mechanical Christmas presents.
Bernard – feeble spirited doctor with strong views on non-violence and obsessed with a dismal puppet show for the children.
Phyllis – Bernard’s lush of a wife whom Bernard struggles to support.
Neville– Phyllis brother-in-always busy fiddling with anything mechanical out in his shed.
Belinda– endures a stale marriage to Neville, resorting to flapping about the house and constantly dressing the Christmas tree.
Eddie – a lacklustre and lazy man who tried to strike out on his own, but failed , sucks up to Neville for work.
Pattie – Eddie’s pregnant wife largely ignored and can only nag at him and wish she were not having another child.
Rachel – Belinda’s emotionally fuddled sister.
Clive – a writer in a non- starter relationship with Rachel.
Harold – Neville and Phyllis’ cantankerous man who boasts about “30 years of experience as a security Officer”. Bemoans the collapse of society, whilst himself gorging on TV violence much to Bernard’s annoyance.
