2014 - Comfort and Joy

by Mike Harding

Comfort and Joy

Performance Dates: November 2014

Directed by Liz Moir

It's Christmas 1996. Relatives you hardly ever see, and who are now very different from you, arrive at your house for the festivities. No one receives a present that is at all appropriate. Culinary disasters abound. Long buried resentments rear their ugly heads as the alcohol flows and tongues are loosened. Mike Harding's comedy is painfully, but always amusingly, familiar.
