The Upstage Theatre Company presents 'Comfort & Joy' by Mike Harding

"It's Christmas, relatives you hardly ever see, and who are now very different from you, arrive at the house for the festivities.
No-one receives a present that is at all appropriate, culinary disasters abound, long buried resentments rear their ugly head as the alcohol flows, tongues are loosened, and the plumbing goes wrong."

Does any of this remind you of your typical family Christmas?'

The Upstage Theatre Company follow up the huge success of A Tale of Two Cities with this comedy by Mike Harding and directed by Chris Smith.
