Stamford Shoestring Theatre present
RULES FOR LIVING , By Sam Holcroft
December 6th-10th , Stamford Arts Centre
We’ve all been there, the family Christmas Day from hell. Everyone tries really, really hard but there comes a point when something (or someone) snaps and all hell breaks loose.
Edith is a matriarch who runs Christmas Day like a military operation; her husband is recovering from an operation; her two sons and their respective other halves don’t get along; and her teenage granddaughter won’t come downstairs to Christmas dinner.
But this play, first produced by the National Theatre in 2015, is much more than a gloriously riotous and uproarious comedy. Intriguingly, we get to see the characters’ motivations, their internal ‘rules’, via a real-time electronic dashboard on the set.
