MOTHER CHRISTMAS now published by Josef Weinberger Plays, world premiere at Hampstead Theatre 14th December 201705 December 2017
We’re pleased to announce the publication of David Lewis’ Mother Christmas to tie in with the world premiere production at Hampstead Theatre this December, where David’s previous play Sunspots premiered in 2015.
Christmas past, Christmas present and Christmas future are all very
familiar. But in the hands of a dysfunctional family intent on throwing
annual fancy dress parties on Christmas Eve under the watchful eye
of their matriarch Maggie, seasonal festivities are destined to spiral
out of control. Over the course of three Christmases, Maggie, her
children Davina and Ben and her granddaughter Grace attempt to
have themselves a merry little Christmas but past resentments and
recriminations inevitably rise to the surface each time. Surely one year
will be full of peace and love and the true spirit of Christmas? Don’t bet
on it . . .
