Season's Greetings

Alan Ayckbourn

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

When families get together there’s always a chance of chaos - particularly if you happen to be trapped for several days with all your relatives and copious amounts of alcohol.

Neville and Belinda are hosting a long Christmas weekend. Among the guests are two demanding uncles – Bernard, whose ham-fisted annual puppet shows are a source of dread to young and old alike, and obstinate TV addict Harvey. Add in the broken toys, disappointing gifts, creaking marriages and a tryst under the Christmas tree and the inevitable, and all too familiar, mayhem is quickly unleashed.

This production is recommended for ages 8 and over.

This amateur production of “Season's Greetings” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement. 


When you arrive at the ADC Theatre, there are power assisted doors to the Box Office. In the foyer there is a lift which leads up to the bar and auditorium. The accessible toilet is located on the ground floor across the foyer. Further information can be found here.
