Publisher's Summary

A sparkling BBC Radio 4 production of Alan Ayckbourn’s festive play, starring Frances Barber, Phil Daniels, Bill Nighy, Geoffrey Palmer and John Sessions.

Christmas is the season of good cheer and harmony among men, but things are not working out quite that way in the Bunker household. As a motley collection of friends and relatives fill the house with their own wishes, dreams and attitudes, the stage is set for seasonal disharmony and romantic intrigue.

It’s Christmas Eve and while Belinda is rushing around decorating the tree and seeing to all the guests and their needs, Eddie and Pattie are having a serious bust-up. Added to all of this, Bernard is conducting a chaotic rehearsal of his annual gift for the children - a puppet show of The Three Little Pigs - as his wife, Phyllis gets quietly sloshed in the kitchen on the cooking wine. Then something disastrous occurs...

    "Hard To Follow"

    I agree completely with the UK reviewer who called this recording bizarre and felt it jumped around too much. For me the storyline was very hard to follow--I really couldn't understand what was happening. The voices of the actors faded in and out so much as they walked from room to room (I am just guessing here about this) that it was hard to hear what was being said. Maybe if you know the characters from other programs and recordings this might all make sense. Overall this was odd and almost depressing? Not what I was expecting.

    "My favorite performance of Alan Ayckbourn"

    Exquisite performance of a great play.
    Alan Ayckbourn at his best. It's worth a listen just to hear Andrew Lincoln as you've never heard him before....

    I have read and see this several times, but still get great pleasure from listening to the audio here, a great adaption.

    Chritsmas will never be the same again

    This is a classic, if you don't know it you are missing out.
