About The Play
Written by Alan Ayckbourn
Directed by Wendy Gomm & Elaine Wilson
It is Christmas Eve in the home of Neville and Belinda Bunker. Belinda's sister Rachel is waiting for her friend, novelist Clive, to arrive for a few days. Heavily pregnant Pattie and her husband Eddie are at loggerheads while in the kitchen Auntie Phyllis's efforts to prepare the dinner are hampered by her drunken and clumsy antics. Her doctor husband Bernard's seasonal highlight is his puppet theatre entertainment and retired security guard Uncle Harvey has a rather unseasonal stash of weapons with him……
Mayhem is quickly unleashed leading to a romantic tryst, an unforgettable puppet show and maybe even a murder ……. Come and watch this comedy festive classic unravel!!!

Welcome back to the Salterton Drama Club. It’s hard to believe that we are almost at the end of another year!
And what a year it has been. Another 4 fabulous productions, Semi-Finalists once again in the All England Theatre Festival, and a Murder Mystery have kept us busy.
I am also absolutely over the moon to announce that we have very recently been awarded £2400 from the Co-Op Community fund. This has paid for us to redecorate the interior of the Playhouse, so we hope you think it looks smart. Thank you to everyone who selected us as our cause. Your support is, as always, what keeps this wonderful theatre going.
This time we return to the stage with Alan Ayckbourn’s classic – Season’s Greetings, directed by Wendy Gomm and first time director Elaine Wilson. The ladies have done a wonderful job and have been extremely patient in directing us rowdy bunch through an extremely fast moving and complex script. The team have had an enormous amount of fun putting this play together and we hope we keep you entertained.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of our audience.
We can’t waiting to see you again in 2020.
